Whether you're looking for the ultimate getaway for yourself or family, there is a lot to do that will keep you busy. Why not join a classic lagoon day tour or indulge in the exquisite cuisine or maybe learn how to kite surf? There's so much to do - all you need is to choose what you'll do first! 

1. AITUTAKI LAGOON DAY TOURS

Take a lagoon cruise on the world’s most beautiful lagoon, where the color blue is redefined. Enjoy BBQ lunch on board and snorkel with turtles, colourful tropical fish and giant trevally. 

2. ENGAGE WITH THE LOCALS

Proud Aitutakians love interacting with visitors. Fun and outgoing people with an intriguing history, who love sharing their Polynesian culture. Visit the oldest church in the Cook Islands for Sunday service. 

3. CHOOSE FROM SO MANY WATER ACTIVITIES

Lagoon cruises, catamaran sailing, diving, SUP hire, sunrise SUP yoga, kayaking, snorkeling, kite surfing, whale watching, spear fishing, big game fishing... and more!

4.  JOIN A UNIQUE TOUR TO LEARN AND DISCOVER
4WD safari tour to Maunga Pu and lush island interior with breathtaking scenery. Learn ancient myths, legends and traditional ancestral ways at Punarei Cultural Village tour.

5. SPA & WELLNESS
Unwind and enjoy spa and massage treatments at one of the many spas and salons around the island. Couples massage, body wraps and scrubs, facials or beachside treatments anyone?

6. INDULGE IN EXQUISITE CUISINE
Feast on world class wines and modern Polynesian and international cuisine at restaurants serving seafood caught straight over the reef in the Pacific ocean and an abundance of fresh local fruit.

7. TOTAL ESCAPE – RELAX AND UNWIND
Whether you are on your own, on business, with family, on honeymoon or celebrating a special occasion, the Cook Islands is perfect for stress-free relaxation and rejuvenation.

8. ISLAND NIGHTS
Enjoy an island night cultural show with traditional umu (underground earth oven) feast and Cook Island dancing. Natural performers, Aitutakian fire-dancing is some of the best in the Cook Islands. 

9. BONE FISHING

For the ultimate fishing challenge, no angler can go past the uniquely large, fast- running, hard fighting Aitutaki Bonefish. Lying on the beautiful lagoon sand flats, they are on every fly fisherman’s bucket-list. 

10. KITE SURFING

A kitesurfer’s nirvana, offering perfect conditions, for experienced or beginner kiters alike: spacious lagoon, warm tropical waters and predominant easterly trade winds, ranging from 15-30 knots.
