A haven of tranquillity and jaw-dropping scenery, Aitutaki is one of the largest of the Cook Islands, found to the north of Rarotonga. Undoubtedly one of the major draws is the beautiful coral lagoon that offers some of the finest snorkelling experiences you’ll find anywhere in the world. The crystal clear water and the magnificent sights are worth a trip on their own.
There’s no shortage of great beaches either – fine white sand can be found across the island and the beaches are often very quiet meaning you’ll have plenty of space. Sample the quintessential easy days of the South Pacific, lounging on a gorgeous white sand beach, sipping a cocktail and letting the relaxation wash over you.
There’s always something to do, whether it’s chatting to locals at the market, learning about the cultural traditions of the Cook Islands or getting onto the water to explore.
