Atiu is over eight million years old and the third largest island in the Cooks. Also known as Enua Manu, Island of the Birds, this friendly place of one-time fearsome warriors, has wild tropical jungle and secluded beaches to explore. This is the adventurer’s dream!

The island is a raised coral atoll with an interesting history, local traditions and distinctive geological structure, a raised coral limestone reef known as the Makatea. Its fossilized coral limestone has many caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites. The world famous Anatakitaki Cave is inhabited by tiny Kopeka birds which navigate in the dark guided by the echoes of their clicking sounds.

Atiu is notable for its coffee too. 'Atiu Coffee' is world famous and its Factory has tours available that end with you sampling a cup of it!
