Aitutaki, Cook Islands

Situated within the Southern Cook Islands, Aitutaki is a picture perfect cruise destination. As a small island with a population of around 2,000 people, this secluded location is a great place to escape modern life, relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery. The island is surrounded by breath-taking beaches and a stunning natural reef, where diving or snorkelling to appreciate the beauty is essential. Aitutaki is divided into eight different districts, of which Arutanga is the main village. This fantastic island needs to be seen to be truly appreciated and is therefore an essential destination on your cruise.

Sightseeing in Aitutaki

There is an abundance of activities to do and sights to see on the island of Aitutaki and visitors should definitely attempt to take part in as many of the activities available as possible. Fun and exciting excursions include scuba diving courses, fishing, windsurfing, golf and the SpaPolynesia Aitutaki, a professional spa resort to help you thoroughly relax whilst on the island. Aitutaki at night has a vibrant and exciting atmosphere, with some resorts putting on shows featuring local dancers and performers to entertain the crowds of tourists. Other important sights on the Cook Island of Aitutaki include:

One Foot Island

One Foot Island provides visitors with glorious sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and the perfect place in which to swim and snorkel in the surrounding reef and ocean. Interestingly, the tiny island also holds the world's most remote post office.

Lagoon Tours

Boat trips around the lagoon can be organised with local companies, so make sure to ask around for the best deal on the island. These cruises can take you all around the lagoon to view the beautiful sights that this idyllic island has to offer. Alternatively, visitors could take matters into their own hands by hiring a kayak or canoe and simply paddle out into the lagoon themselves.

Ministry of Marine Resources

The Ministry of Marine Resources is open every weekday and is a great place to learn more about the marine life living in the island's lagoon. The organisation also houses baby sea turtles and giant clams which can be viewed by the public.

Shopping in Aitutaki

As a very secluded island, Aitutaki is cut off from the rest of the world, which can mean that supplies are often limited. There is a small local shop in the centre of town, but supply does not always meet demand as deliveries by sea can be few and far between.

Eating out in Aitutaki

A popular local dish on the island is Ike mata (or raw tuna) with coconut milk, so be sure to try it whilst staying in Aitutaki. Many of Aitutaki's restaurants, such as Cafe Tupana and Rapae Bay Restaurant, will require you to make reservations before dining. Make sure to visit Te Vaka Bar and Grill for the largest menu on the island and satellite television in the bar. For takeaway options when eating on the move, consider visiting Samade's Bar for great barbeque food or Puffy's for quality fish and chips.
