Our islands are safe and offer visitors many opportunities to explore. However, it is important to make visitors aware of some safety considerations. This page provides curated safety tips from Cook Islands Tourism Corporation that you can share with your teams and guests.
Here are some of our top General Safety tips:
- Be aware of your surroundings and take precautions against petty crime: Keep valuables secured or close, refrain from walking alone at night and be aware of surroundings when in public places.
- Don't drink and drive: The Cook Islands has a zero-tolerance policy for drunk driving, use common sense; if you are planning to have a few drinks, arrange a designated driver or call a taxi.
- Be aware of the weather conditions. The weather in the Cook Islands can change quickly, so it is important to be aware of the weather conditions before heading out on an adventure. If planning on hiking or swimming, be sure to check the weather forecast and dress appropriately.
- Respect the local culture: This includes dressing modestly in public, sunbathing in the nude can be offensive and avoiding excessive public displays of affection.
