What an unreal beautiful spot. A gorgeous quiet island that you must walk around then go for a swim in the turquoise waters, absolutely gorgeous. And don't forget to get your passport stamped there.

One of those fabulous idyllics Islands from postcards and posters that seem to unreal to actually be real. Absolutely beautiful place, white sand, palms and the bluest water you will see. This lagoon could rival just about anywhere in the world. Please make an effort to see it during your trip!

We did a whole day tour of snorkeling and swimming, with barbecue at the beach. Arriving on one food island was like entering the best dream ever. You can even get a small stamp into your passport, because they have the smallest post office of the world. Definitely would recommend this place

One Foot Island is one of the major attractions of Aitutaki lagoon, and while it is undoubtedly super beautiful, it can get a bit too busy at times with all the lagoon cruises stopping either to visit or have lunch. There is a bar on the island and a post office that is open irregularly to allow tourists to have... More

Exactly how a tropical island should be, clear, calm and relaxing. Post office, too funny. The palms were like from a dream

We visited One Foot Island with the Lagoon tour that we signed up. There were 2 other tours docking at the same time. We had lunch there and about 20 min to hang out around there. It was so beautiful, and it felt like we are in the middle of a postcard. You could get your passport stamped, but they... More

Had a lovely stopover here during a lagoon trip with Mere from Black Pearl. We met the friendy island cats and shared our picnic lunch. If you want to really get away from it all, I'd suggest a trip out to Maina for the day. That said, One Foot was great fun and I even got my passport stamped.
