One Foot Island, Aitutaki

4.8
#1 of 6 in Nature in Cook Islands
Famous for its azure lagoon, One Foot Island is considered one of the most visually appealing islands in the country. The island rewards visitors with sweeping views and easy access to a lagoon known for its rich marine life. While most people just visit for a few hours for the world-class snorkeling, stay overnight by calling ahead of time and reserving the only cabin on the beach. Some palm trees provide shade, but take your own water and food. Also take your passport and get a unique stamp from the post office. Take the guesswork out of planning a Aitutaki vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • One of the most beautiful small islands in the lagoon if not the best. You should definitely visit it, or better yet spend the day there.  more »

  • Very romantic place. In front of Aitutaki Island in the lovely Cook Islands archepello. You can even get your passport stamped as a proof you were there. No accommodations on One Foot Island but worth any penny you spend to get there. The lagoon boat ride is amazing and you can also snorkel while seeing the famous Giant Clams of Cook Islands. Something you will cherish forever in your memories.
  • Absolutely beautiful, the perfect place to be stranded.
  • If you get the chance to go to Aitutaki (and one foot island), do it! This place is absolutely magical!
  • Crystal clean water, perfect for snorkeling. It leaves you precious memory swimming with various of colorful fishes, giant trevally and giant clam.
  • It's bigger than one foot but worth a visit to get your passport stamped at the smallest post office (in the world? Or was it the south Pacific..can't remember). Some nice snorkelling in one area where shells and coral have been setup to grow on a few man made objects. Your guide will point out where.
