Aitutaki

No holiday to the Cook Islands would be complete without visiting the azure lagoon and white sand shores of Aitutaki. Due to the Air New Zealand flight schedules in and out of the UK and LA, itineraries to the Cooks tend to be 12 nights long, 7 of which we recommend you staying on Rarotonga and 5 on Aitutaki. The reason to do it this way round is that Rarotonga is all about the local… the seeing, the doing and the experiencing of colourful Cooks culture and it’s great to have a full week to explore and relax on Raro. Aitutaki on the other hand is ALL about the chill… the sandy islets, the lagoon, the pampering, the lazy sun soaked days, the ultimate island escape for 5 uninterrupted, heavenly days!.

Although there is more than enough to do and see on Aitutaki, after a busy week on Rarotonga, this is the place to totally rest, relax and unwind. Whilst the accommodation on Rarotonga tends to be self-catered or breakfast only, on Aitutaki we recommend checking into a luxury resort - we love Pacific Resort Aitutaki - for an indulgent, full service hotel experience. The combination of self-catering on Raro followed by hotel accommodation on Aitutaki complement each other perfectly, and it’s another reason why a holiday to the Cook Islands is so unique.

Must Do: Lagoon Cruise

The one thing you must do whilst enjoying the laid-back life of Aitutaki is book a half or full day lagoon cruise. We can do this for you in advance or you will be able to organise it whilst you are there through the hotel concierge.  It is hard to find the words to describe just how breathtakingly beautiful the lagoon is, and the only way to really get out there and experience it in all its glory is by boat. The cruise will take you on a journey through the turquoise pathways of crystal clear water which weave in and out of countless white sandy cays, stopping off along the way for you to snorkel and explore. Alongside sun cream, hat and camera… make sure you pack your passport, not because you’ll need it, but because along the way you will stop off at One Foot Island, where you will find the world’s most rustic passport office. The footprint stamp is the ultimate Cook Islands souvenir and potentially most sought-after passport stamp in the world, you won’t want to go home without yours!
