    Rarotonga

    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.

  • Aitutaki, Cook Islands.

    Aitutaki

    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.
