Aitutaki's triangular barrier reef surrounds a turquoise lagoon of crystal clear water.
We've included these beaches for you: Aitutaki Lagoon and O'otu Beach. Take a break from the city and head to One Foot Island and Moturakau. There's much more to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take in nature's colorful creations at Aitutaki Secret Garden, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Maungapu, and look for gifts at T & S Artworx.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Aitutaki driving holiday planner.

The center of Rarotonga is a mass of peaks and ridges, closely thatched with dense jungle.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Punanga Nui and Bergman & Sons. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Muri Lagoon and Titikaveka Beach. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cook Island Christian Church (CICC), explore the world behind art at Cook Islands Library & Museum, stop by Rito Cook Islands, and take in the dramatic scenery at Papua ( Wigmore's) Waterfall.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Rarotonga fast, fun, and easy.

Getting from Aitutaki to Rarotonga by combination of car and flight takes about 3 hours. In December in Rarotonga, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
