Who mentioned , there was only one shop on their trip...then you guys went to a wrong place to begin with, buttheads. It's worth of taking the right boat trip with captain Puna. He takes you to two marvelous snorkeling places, very, very... More

Enjoyed swimming and snorkelling, and then walk out to honeymoon island. Not much to see on the island, apart from one shop.

If you've made it to the Cooks, then Aitutaki, it would be the biggest mistake in your life to miss seeing One Foot Island. This truly sums up Paradise for our family - pristine white sand, lush tropical jungle, crystal clear sparkling water and the captain of our boat cooking his fresh (spear caught) parrot fish on the beach for...

One Foot Island is so pretty you feel like you are in a postcard. The setting of Palm trees and water is magical. You can have your passport stamped with a stamp from post office for a small fee. The Vaka cruise also did this if you prefer. Lovely island and definitely one of the prettiest locations in the world!

Tapuaeta'i, or One Foot Island, was apparently named after an old legend where a Cook Islander and his son were trying to escape from their enemies. Supposedly, the father followed in his son's footsteps to hide their numbers. Make sure to take your passport and you'll be able to get one of the most unique, memorable passport stamps that you'll... More

We took the Aitutaki Adventures trip with Puna our skipper, great snorkelling spots, even better lunch waiting for us on the island! And of course Puna's homemade lemonade, super tasty :))

Revive your senses on this beautiful oasis. Soak up your surroundings as you recline under the palm trees, picnic on a tropical food hamper, walk along the silky, pure white sand (10 minutes to walk around the motu or island), hand feed the fish. Heavenly...

How fantastic that for a small fee of $2 you get your passport stamped for visiting One Foot Island. A lovely island with lots to look at.
