Per Kamperin loves to travel and vacation with his friends and family. He has traveled to many different areas of the world including Australia, Singapore, and the Pacific Island, Aitutaki.
Aitutaki is a magnificent and remote island that many people are unfamiliar with. It is part of the Cook Islands, a group of 15 islands spread across the Pacific Ocean halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii. The Cook Islands are one of the best kept secrets of the Pacific. With an idyllic climate, awe-inspiring scenery, and friendly welcoming people, the Cook Islands make for a perfect travel destination.
Less than an hour flight from the capital of the Cook Islands, Rarotonga, Aitutaki is the second most visited of the group of islands. There is plenty to do and see here for people of all ages. Whether you are an adventure or someone simply looking to sit back and relax, Aitutaki has exactly what you are looking for. Some of the most popular sites and activities on the island of Aitutaki include:
Aitutaki Lagoon is the single biggest attraction on the island. With its breathtaking scenery, fine white sands, and crystal clear waters, the area is considered a paradise to many. It is the perfect place to relax and have a cocktail while enjoying the calm, worry-free island atmosphere.
-One Foot Island
One Foot Island is a small islet located to the south-east of the lagoon. It is recognized as one of the most beautiful places in the Pacific. From here, visitors will find the best views of the Aitutaki lagoon. There are also many areas where you are able to walk on sandbanks far off of the island, depending on the tide.
At Aitutaki Island, you can find just about any water based sport or activity known to man. Snorkeling is very popular on the island in the clear blue waters of the shore. Deep sea fishing and lagoon fishing are also very popular activities. A relatively new water sport popular in Aitutaki is bonefishing.
Maunga Pu is the highest point of the island. It offers a stunning 360 degree birds eye view of the entire island and lagoon.
