One Foot Island, Aitutaki

4.7
#2 of 17 in Parks in Cook Islands
Island Nature / Park
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.

  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Asuka II. South Pacific Grand cruise with cruise off the island of Aitutaki. Too was moved by the beautiful sea.

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.
