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.

  • A very beautiful place and probably what people come to Aitutaki to see. The giant clams were cool as was the sand bar you could walk to at low tide. There were giant trevally (over a meter long) and ...  more »
  • We visited on our Lagoon Cruise, white sandy beaches and great swimming. You can get your passport stamped with the one foot stamp too.  more »
  • An alien place! Went out in the lagoon early morning. Did stop off at an old pier where Coral Lines float plane landed to refuel en route from New Zealand to Hawaii. So we stop at a sandrevel and goes out of the flat-bottomed boat in the shallow, turquoise water ... A walk across this One Foot Iceland is like walking in the clouds, which reflect themselves in the water with the unlikely color. The sand is white puderlik and. ... Do you have your Passport with you will get a stamp in it! The world's smallest "Kingdom"! Lunch is served at a well hidden houses for us tourists to get grilled freshly caught fish at. Did not want to leave this sandreven in the lagoon that was so incredibly beautiful! On our trip there out there was a young couple from Italy. They devoted themselves out here the day after! Didn't think so this almost unspoiled sites were at a relatively easily accessible ways. A must if you travel to Cook Islands!

  • Crystal clean water, perfect for snorkeling. It leaves you precious memory swimming with various of colorful fishes, giant trevally and giant clam.
  • The lagoon is hard to comprehend. picture perfect setting. Other than this, it tends to get crowded with excursion boats bringing tourists, having meals on the beach and listening to loud music. there is a small post office one can mail a postcard with the "one foot"stamp for $5NZD. definitelly a must do while on Atutaki.
  • Beautiful island with a beautiful story. We took the amazing Vaka cruise over and enjoyed an hour trapsing around it. Make sure to bring shoes if you plan on walking around the whole island as there is a lot of sharp coral. There are a few uninhabited structures that I assume are for day use and some local cats and chickens. You can also snorkel in the area. Make sure to get your passport stamped!
  • 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.
  • Beautiful little tropical island south of Aitutaki. Water is clear and blue and great for snorkelling to see the giant trevally and giant clams.
