Aitutaki Travel Guide

A 45-minute flight from Rarotonga, Aitutaki is the ultimate getaway destination for those who want to leave the world behind. With views of swaying palm trees, clear turquoise water, and sparkling white sand, it's no wonder that Aitutaki is quickly becoming the most popular holiday destination in the Cook Islands.

Tiny Aitutaki is home to only 2,100 or so inhabitants, most of whom live in the capital village of Arutanga. The infrastructure on the island is basic, including all the necessary amenities, and doesn't cross the line into crass commercialism.

Manmade attractions in Aitutaki include a golf course, spa, and the bars and restaurants attached to the various resorts on the island. The popular Island Nights are a great way to experience Cook Islands culture, with traditional music, food, and dancing.

However, the most popular attractions in Aitutaki are its natural ones. Scuba diving, fishing, windsurfing, and swimming, as well as excursions to various lagoons and small islands in the reef, are the main reasons to visit this tropical haven. Aitutaki is small, and a popular way to see it is to rent a scooter. You'll find yourself zipping along the picturesque roads in no time, travelling to picnics at secluded lagoons and tranquil beaches.
