Cook Islands: Climate and Weather

The archipelago is located in the tropics and is surrounded by the Pacific. There is also a trade wind blowing there. This fact is largely responsible for the climate there. The rainy season lasts from November to April. The mean annual rainfall is z. B. on the island of Rarotonga around 2,000 mm. The highest precipitation falls in March with around 260 mm. Typhoons can be expected in the period from November to March.

By the way, climate is understood to mean long-term developments, whereas weather only means that over several days.

Cook Islands: Sightseeing

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

There are currently no UNESO world cultural or natural heritage sites on the Cook Islands. In addition, there are currently no proposals for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List for the Cook Islands.


Avarua is the capital and largest city of the Cook Islands. However, Avarua only has about 5,500 residents. Almost every visitor comes to Avarua, because the city serves as a starting point for trips to all other islands. In the vicinity of the city is the Rarotonga International Airport, which brings visitors to the Cook Islands. There are supermarkets and two banks in town.

Museums and galleries

Church and cemetery

Cook Islands Christian Church

Avarua has a beautiful Protestant church from 1835. It was built from white coral blocks and looks like a small fortress in the middle of the surrounding cemetery.


The cemetery is opposite the church. Here you can also find the grave of the Prime Minister of the Cook Islands, Sir Albert Henry.

Marae Arai-Te-Tonga

Only stone ruins remain of what was once the island's most important temple. This site is still considered sacred, so entering it is not encouraged.

Natural beauties


In principle, each of the 15 islands forms its own natural beauty. But the island of Suwarrow should be mentioned in particular. It was discovered on September 17, 1814 by the crew of the Russian sailor "Suvorov", after which it was named. It was called the most romantic island in the world by the wife of Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), author of the novel "Treasure Island". The island is a pure atoll. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef that surrounds a lagoon.

Black Rocks/Rarotonga

The cliffs got the name Black Rocks because they are made of basalt. They are located on the main road near the airport.

One-Foot Island/Aitutaki

The " one-foot " island with its beaches and the wonderful blue lagoon offers the perfect South Sea experience.
