From chartering a boat to a remote sandbank with only a towel and a bottle of champagne, to climbing the rock face of Rarotonga's Needle on a Cross-Island Trek, to sipping Tumunu bush beer in Atiu, or hearing the lulls of humpback whales as you dive the turquoise waters of Aitutaki, in the Cook Islands you have the freedom and choice to create your ideal holiday experience.
The Cook Islands are laid back, carefree, and fun - which is why we like to think we're the best tropical destination for couples. From romance and relaxation, to action and adventure, markets or gourmet dining, there's something for every couple on every budget here.
Rarotonga guarantees a fun family holiday, where kids can experience the same kind of freedom that you enjoyed as a child! We are an easy destination, where you can snorkel, swim, play on the beach, or jump on a bike to explore the island.
Explore by Water
Experience the brilliant blue sea by swimming, snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, diving, fishing, kite surfing, whale watching, and hopping on a glass bottom lagoon cruise.
Explore by Land
Discover the great outdoors with a hike through the jungle or exploring on safari jeeps, 4WDs, quad bikes, or bicycles.
Dining & Nightlife
There's a huge variety of cafes and restaurants providing delicious food at prices similar to home. While you'll find $3.50 beers on happy hour and $10 meals at the markets, you can also dine at high-end restaurants or have a gourmet platter delivered to your room.
Come. Stay. Relax.
With a friendly Polynesian culture, the locals are genuine and inviting. You'll see our amazing drumming and dancing talents at cultural shows, listen to church choirs singing on Sunday, and chat about island life at the markets and roadside stalls.
Spa & Wellness
Enjoy the relaxation you deserve with a massage on the beach or other treatments at the many spas and salons on the islands. For a mind and body experience, find balance with a SUP yoga class in Muri Beach or try one of the yoga sessions set in the jungle.
Weddings & Honeymoons
Year-round warm weather, white sand beaches, clear blue lagoons, spectacular scenery and an abundance of tropical flowers make the Cook Islands the best island wedding and tropical honeymoon destination in the South Pacific.
Enjoy participating in our international festivals and events during your holiday. You'll always find something to see and do throughout the year and will be welcomed to join in with open arms.
You can purchase local arts and crafts all over the islands - including pupu necklaces, hand-printed pareus (sarongs), local oils and fragrances. But above all, the Cooks are known for our prized black pearls - the quality is superb and so are the prices.
