Six of the best things do to in the Cook Islands

It might be a long way to go, but the Cook Islands are well worth the trek. Traditionally sold as a beach extension to Australia or New Zealand, the Cook Islands are becoming increasingly popular as a stand-alone holiday destination.

Scattered across 2.2 million square metres of serene ocean - halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii - the Cook Islands boast unspoilt landscapes, an idyllic climate welcoming people with heartfelt smiles, and a peaceful and simple way of life.

The following are just 6 of the many, many, things to do in Cook Islands, and you'll soon see that there is so much to do and see here.

#1

Party with the locals

Discover a fun nightlife scene like no other. Open air bars, pub crawl tour buses, discos and more - everybody's welcome, and there are surprises around every corner.

#2

Discover Atiutaki

A beautiful bird sanctuary full of natural wonders, including cool caves and caverns, and a shipwrecked beach that you can enjoy all to yourself.

#3

Indulge in exquisite cuisine

There are many ways to tantalise your taste buds here, from joining an evening island cultural show and tucking in to local delights, to enjoying a progressive dinner with the locals. Everyone must stop at a roadside stall for a fresh nu (coconut) too.

#4

Join a unique tour to learn and discover

Storytelling bike tours around the island, fruit picking, jungle 4WD safaris, island hikes with Pa, traditional village tours..and that's just for starters.

Wonder at the pristine beauty of Aitutaki Lagoon

Journalists consistently call this 'the world's most beautiful island and lagoon'. Take a lagoon cruise and see for yourself - the colour blue us redefined here.

#6

Engage with the locals

Cook Islanders love interacting with visitors, and the people themselves are fun and outgoing, with an intriguing history and a love for sharing their Polynesian culture.
