Often referred to as ‘Heaven on Earth’, Aitutaki is pure paradise.
Just 50 minutes flight from Raratonga, Aitutaki consists of 15 small motus (islets) surrounded by bright turquoise lagoon and a triangular-shaped reef. The crystal-clear water is home to an array of tropical fish and its pristine white-sand beaches are private and secluded.
After Raratonga, Aitutaki is the second most visited island in the Cook Islands. The private and romantic atmosphere holds a compelling alure to couples and honeymooners. Several operators cruise daily to many of the secluded motus as well as spectacular dive and snorkelling sites abundant with colourful fish, turtles and coral clusters. Attempt to zoom across the sandy shallows kite boarding or try your hand at deep sea and fly fishing. Learn the history and culture of the friendly Aitutaki people on day tours or hire a scooter or bicycle to explore at your own pace.
