Aituaki Cook Islands This magnificent and remote coral atoll, with a fish hook shaped emergent volcanic peak at the northern end, rises up 4000 meters from the floor of the Pacific Ocean. Aitutaki consists of 3 volcanic and 12 coral islets (motu). Home to one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, it’s only a 45-minute flight from Rarotonga – you can even go for just a day trip

The Aitutaki lagoon offers many water-based activities including snorkeling and scuba diving, as the island has some of the most bio-diverse reef systems in the world. The outer canyons of the barrier reef hold several hundred species of fish, while the inner lagoon tours will take you to the giant clam reserve, small motu and some of the nicest beaches you have ever set foot on. It truly has to be seen to be believed!

There are daily inter-island flights to Aitutaki and tours to experience. Let us organise your dream trip to make the most of this beautiful island or find out more about our Holiday Packages.
