Featuring on many ‘must see’ destination lists, Aitutaki boasts arguably the most idyllic lagoon in the world. A vast expanse of crystal clear water scattered with uninhabited white sand islets, that frame the palm-fringed main island. It’s the quintessential tropical island scenery.

It doesn’t get better than Aitutaki for experiencing the relaxed Polynesian way of life. Spend a few days here and before long you’ll be operating on island time. For those with more energy, there’s everything to do on or in the water; days are spent snorkelling, swimming, diving or kayaking. Learn to windsurf or kite surf, or try stand-up paddle boarding. Fly fishers will love the opportunity to seek out the elusive bonefish. Cruise to snorkelling spots and tiny islets (motus) such as gorgeous One Foot Island. Send a postcard from the island’s post office, it’s the world’s smallest. Or visit Honeymoon Island – a long stretch of sand permanently under 20cm of water.

For those that like their own patch of paradise, catch a water taxi or hire a canoe and paddle out to the nearest motu for a picnic on your very own stretch of beach.

The lagoon takes centre stage but there are plenty of other options to divert your attention. For the best views on the main island, it’s an easy 30 minute walk to the summit of Mt Maungapu, Aitutaki’s highest point (124 metres). Delve into the region’s history on a cultural or 4WD tour or experience the showmanship of the Aitutakians at a cultural show. The high spirited, hip swinging performances of the drummers and dancers are unbeatable.
