Quirky little island with it's own unofficial Post Office. You can get your passport stamped here as a momento of your visit. Beer is cheaper here than on the cruise boats & you can walk around the island in about 15 minutes. A truly beautiful place in the beaufiful Aitutaki Lagoon. Well worth a visit.

We had been previously to One Foot Island and it was still as nice as the first time we visited it 12 years ago.

We came here on our lagoon cruise but was a little underwhelmed after having visited 3 other motus before we arrived on one foot island. After "heaven" this seemed a non-event. Lovely beach, beautiful water but it's just another island. Maybe I missed something, but it wasn't worth the rave I've heard from others.

Our fantastic day out with Bishops Cruises took our small group to 3 Islands within the Aitutaki Lagoon. One Foot Island was our final destination where a delicious lunch was waiting for us. A small timber building served as the centre where our barbeque lunch was cooked, a post office for stamping your passport, selling tee shirts and caps and... More

When it was windy and cloudy on Aitutaki, a trip to One Foot Island was just Brilliant. We got out of the wind and was very warm and sunny.

Once getting the first glimpse of the water surrounding this magic place.....I could'n help but smile. We did go on a charter boat around 3 pm just before all the other day trip boats were about to leave. Few minutes later we were alone admiring the beauty of this deserted island paradise on a calm and sunny afternoon. The best... More
