One Foot Island, Aitutaki

4.7
#1 of 6 in Nature in Cook Islands
Famous for its azure lagoon, One Foot Island is considered one of the most visually appealing islands in the country. The island rewards visitors with sweeping views and easy access to a lagoon known for its rich marine life. While most people just visit for a few hours for the world-class snorkeling, stay overnight by calling ahead of time and reserving the only cabin on the beach. Some palm trees provide shade, but take your own water and food. Also take your passport and get a unique stamp from the post office. Take the guesswork out of planning a Aitutaki vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • We have discovered this special island in an island boat tour. As a single building, the post station is on this island. Here you can get a stamp in their passport. The post office was already closed, our Bootsfüher has somehow still managed to stamp our pass. Well done! Thank you

  • Went here on two very different boat tours. It can get crowded from midday on. We recommend Vaka cruise and Kia Orama cruise to go there.  more »

  • It's bigger than one foot but worth a visit to get your passport stamped at the smallest post office (in the world? Or was it the south Pacific..can't remember). Some nice snorkelling in one area where shells and coral have been setup to grow on a few man made objects. Your guide will point out where.
  • Had a lovely time with our boat tour here: swam with giant trevally, had a fresh fish BBQ lunch & buffet on the beach and still had plenty of time to walk 'round the circumference of the island (and find the resident cat).
  • It is absolutely heaven!! Best place!!
  • Verry nice place.
  • Arrived here with two feet, left with one. Rabid fish attacked my feet when I was strolling through the water on the shoreline.

Where to stay in Aitutaki

Aitutaki's biggest draw are the luxury resorts with gourmet restaurants, infinity pools, and private beaches (or entire private islands) directly on the lagoon. Other options cater to the thrifty traveler, from basic backpacker's lodgings to a range of private bungalows and villas at mid-range prices. Because of Aitutaki's small size, all options are on or extremely close to a beach and turquoise lagoon.
