Ask any Aitutaki local and they’ll tell you they invented the colour blue. While that may be a stretch, the colour of its atoll-ringed lagoon may just turn you into a believer. One of the smallest islands in the Cook Islands archipelago, Aitutaki is made up of 15 motus (islets), sprinkled like fairy dust across a vast lagoon. “Flying in over Aitutaki sees our guests crane their necks to get their first glimpse of the incredible turquoise-blue water to see if the pictures they have seen are real,” says Ewan Smith, managing director of Air Rarotonga, owners of The Vaka Cruise on Aitutaki.

New Jetstar direct flights between Sydney and Rarotonga start on June 29, with onward flights to Aitutaki available with Air Rarotonga. The Vaka Cruise is a top introduction to this mesmerising lagoon, with a new boat about to be unveiled. If you’re visiting between July and October you can even snorkel with humpback whales with Dive Aitutaki or Wet and Wild Aitutaki.
