visited the island as part of the Aitutaki day cruise. Beautiful scenery and the sand looks like it's constantly moving due to the numerous hermit crabs. Beautiful blue waters and a serene and scenic place.

Outstanding spot. If you want to use the actual post office to stamp your passport you will need to go on the Bishops Tour. The Vaka tour (boat in this picture) is good but you eat lunch on he boat and they stamp your passport when you leave. Or you can use the Post Office and pay a couple of... More

We caught a water taxi out to One Foot Island on a Sunday - which is the best day beacsue a lot of the charter businesses dont work on Sundays. Also in our favour was the lack of wind so there were no swarms of noisy kite surfers to bother us. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.... More

While One Foot Island is a beautiful motu, it is probably the most crowded place on the island besides church services on Sunday. Everyone goes here to get the obligatory passport stamp. The coral around the motu is very damaged and so the snorkeling is poor. It is a beautiful place for a stroll.

We visited One Foot twice. The first time, everything was closed (but that was Teking's fault). The second time, only the drinks counter was open, but we still bought some stamps and drinks. It's a beautiful island...Honeymoon is our favorite, though.
