A Cook Islands vacation offers a mix of vibrant, authentic island culture, opportunities for action and adventure, hiking, pony trekking, cultural tours, water sports of every kind - and a real commitment to the joys of relaxing.
Rarotonga is the main island of the Cook Islands and is dominated by high mountain peaks and a palm-fringed shore. The island is almost completely encircled by a reef, which provides a lagoon of clear turquoise water - just waiting to be explored.
Just a short 45 minute journey from Rarotonga, Aitutaki is a pacific escape unlike any other. You'll step back in time and come back totally rejuvenated.

Things you must see and do in the Cook Islands
- Find a beach - one with plenty of white sand, coconut palms and clear blue water that stretches forever (that's not going to be hard)
- If you can, tear yourself out of your hammock get into that turquoise sea - whether swimming, snorkelling or diving, you'll find a kaleidoscope of tropical colour, even in shallow water
- Take a trip to Aitutaki from Rarotonga, and stay a few days!
