Perhaps less known than their French Polynesian cousins, the Cook Islands are a collection of 30 tiny jewels in heart of the South Pacific.
A place of warm smiles and friendly people, the atmosphere and glorious beaches of the Cook Islands are unforgettable. But holidays to the Cook Islands aren’t complete by just visiting one island. Take to the skies on a scenic flight from Rarotonga to Aitutaki and islands beyond for the ultimate island-hopping holiday.
With 32 kilometres of sublime oceanfront, Rarotonga is the largest island. Lush rainforests and volcanic peaks create a rich backdrop to the pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear lagoons and the girdling reef line. A hive of activity will keep the energetic engaged with onshore hiking and off roading, whilst the waters are a playground for all manner of water sports, scuba and snorkelling.
Aitutaki is a smaller island in the group, with a beautiful sloping interior of rainforest giving way to sandy beaches and beyond to a lagoon five times the island’s land size, surrounded by a ring of coral and sandy islets. For those looking to really get away from it all, this is the island for you.
