My husband & i were lucky to spend two idyllic hours on this tiny island on our own & it was heaven. The boat trip that calls there for picnic lunch turned up with just 12 passengers, but that felt much to crowded & noisy so we made a quick exit! It remains in my memory forever if we never... More

You must go there is going to Aitutaki, Great little island, you get your passport stamped, great swimming, lovely clear water and just an island you read about in the all the travel brochures. There a number of day cruises which range in price around the $100 mark but worth it.

One Foot is a must to visit if you go to Aitutaki in the Cook Islands. The white floury sand and turquoise water are truly unique.

A truly amazing destination to visit while you visit Akatuki. Glad there are no resorts etc here as the isolation just enhanced the experience. From the great snorkling at the end of the groyne to the ability to do "Bombies" strait off the beach into the water, the beautiful sand and opportunities to swim across to the other larger island...

One Foot island is a beautiful island to visit. Amazing blue water, George the Giant Travelly to hand feed, and you can get your passport stamped at the Post Office. Te Vaka day cruises got us to One Foot island. The full day cruise stopped at two other islands, as well providing a beautiful lunch from local produce, and a... More

Book your lagoon trip with TeKing!!! We met him on our first visit and he made the experience memorable. We book him each time we go even though we've all ready been on the tour. Take your passport when you go to One Foot because you can get it stamped at the bar/post office and mail a post card from... More
