Avarua township is Rarotonga's main shopping location. There you will find a selection of souvenir shops, department stores, supermarkets, bars, cafes and restaurants as well as the essential services such as banks, pharmacies, Post Office and Police Station. For that precious memento of your stay you can't go past the beautiful Cook Island black pearl. The Black Pearl boutique in Avarua and around the island are well worth a visit.
