Aitutaki Lagoon, Aitutaki

4.9
#1 of 18 in Parks in Cook Islands
Dive into a veritable aquarium at Aitutaki Lagoon, a pool of turquoise seawater surrounded by white sand and lively coral reefs. The water is so clear you will not need snorkeling gear, but certainly consider taking it if you want a closer look at the exotic marine life. To reach this lagoon, look for a boat tour that stops by, rent a private boat to drop you off for the day, or stay overnight at the nearby resort. The resort also provides a restaurant and restroom facilities. Use our Aitutaki sightseeing planner to add Aitutaki Lagoon and other attractions to your Aitutaki vacation plans.

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.
