Things to do

There are plenty of ways to enjoy our islands and your holiday. Wander the beaches with virtually nobody on them, relax in a hammock, or get out on the lagoon on some of the activities and adventures we offer. The Cook Islands is like one big resort where you can easily go from pampering to paddle boarding; from kayaking to cocktails; from island hikes to island nights. The vibe is chilled and we can’t wait to welcome you to our Polynesian home.
