Mountainous Rarotonga, cloaked in forest and surrounded by sandy beaches and coral reefs is heart breakingly beautiful, whilst offshore the island atoll of Aitutaki, with its a vast turquoise lagoon and tiny islets of swaying palms and sugar white sands, is many people’s idea of the perfect castaway island.
Not only are Cook Islanders are said to be the friendliest people in the Pacific, they're also considered the best dancers. Traditional island songs and dance always play a part in the evenings so island nights combining a traditional feast and dancing are not to be missed.
As wonderful as the beaches are in the Cooks, there’s also plenty to satisfy the adventurous spirit. Stretch your legs on one of the many trails criss-crossing mountainous Rarotonga, hire a bike and explore deserted beaches, quiet lanes and little villages or hop on a jeep or quad bike tour into the rugged interior. Out on the water, the reef protected lagoons are perfect for kayaking, swimming and kitesurfing, whilst below the waves the snorkelling and diving are simply world class.
Aitutaki’s natural beauty is simply stunning and it’s no exaggeration to say it is the jewel in the Pacific’s crown. The spectacular lagoon of crystal clear water is encircled by uninhabited emerald islands, gleaming white sand bars and colourful coral reefs, teeming with fish. Utterly tranquil and impossibly romantic this would be a wonderful place for your dream honeymoon.
