Visit to the Cook Islands is not complete without seeing the beautiful island of Aitutaki, 220 kms north of Rarotonga and less than an hours flight away. Aitutaki is the second most visited of the magical Cook Islands and is recommended as a “must see” extension to your Rarotonga holiday. Several recommended accommodation facilities exist on the main island. Day trips can be arranged.
Partly volcanic and (in parts) of atoll origin, its highest hill, Maungapu (124 metres) is said to be the top of Rarotonga’s Raemaru Peak brought back by victorious Aitutaki warriors. Its large and spectacular lagoon (45kms around) teems with coloured fish of many varieties and many small and charming uninhabited islands (motu’s) are sprinkled along the fringes of the outer lagoon. This is a place of great natural beauty and tranquillity, where crystal clear waters and swaying palms provide a simple tonic to sooth away the pressures of the outside world.
Day trips are available with Air Rarotonga. These can include an island tour and lagoon cruise to visit Tapuaetai (One Foot Island). Lunch will be prepared while you relax and work on your tan, explore the coral, go snorkelling or hand feed the fish – an experience you will never forget.
Be sure to take a lagoon cruise which generally includes a picnic lunch and drinks on an uninhabited island, swimming, snorkelling, hand-feeding the fish and informative dialogue of the history and geology of Aitutaki. Scuba divers and game fishing enthusiasts are well catered for both in the lagoon and outside the reef.
For those who wish to explore the main island, rental cars and motorcycles are available at reasonable rates. Catamarans are available for hire and there is a challenging nine hole golf course.
