Aitutaki

Aitutaki's triangular barrier reef surrounds a turquoise lagoon of crystal clear water. Beneath the gently rippling surface you will find teeming coral, giant clams, and brightly colored fish in every hue. In the north corner of the almost-atoll is Aitutaki's main island, with a handful of dwellings, an old church, and some gigantic Banyan trees, where the islanders will regale you with song, dance, and storytelling. Dotted around the reef are smaller, uninhabited islets, their pure white sands fringed with swaying palm trees. Most well known is One Foot Island, said to offer the best views of the lagoon. Aitutaki is in Southern Cook Islands. To arrange what you want to do in Aitutaki, use our Cook Islands online journey planner .

Where to stay in Aitutaki

Aitutaki's biggest draw are the luxury resorts with gourmet restaurants, infinity pools, and private beaches (or entire private islands) directly on the lagoon. Other options cater to the thrifty traveler, from basic backpacker's lodgings to a range of private bungalows and villas at mid-range prices. Because of Aitutaki's small size, all options are on or extremely close to a beach and turquoise lagoon.
