40 minutes by air, the bright white sand and swaying palms of Aitutaki makes this one of the most beautiful spots on the Cook Islands. Up to 20 miles across, the lagoon offers spectacular snorkelling amongst a vast array of fish. One of the most idyllic beaches here is Tapuaetai, (One-Foot Island), popular with day-trippers on the plane from Rartonga. There are a few upscale resorts on Aitutaki for people who relish the desert island experience after the trippers have departed.
