This unspoilt lagoon is so breathtaking I am still dreaming of it. Every bit of this lagoon is post card picture perfect.

You've seen the pictures, heard the tales... but being there leaves you breathless and stuck for superlatives to describe the colour and clarity of the water. Since returning I have been consulting colour charts for the best description of the water ... it's impossible to categorise. All I know is that I have now seen paradise...

Words do not do this lagoon justice....it is paradise on earth. We were with Ali who made our day...what a character he is. The snorkelling was superb as was lunch and the time on One Foot Island special. Thanks Aitutaki for a wonderful experience.

We went out with Captain Puna. The water was crystal clear with a large variety of fish. Captain Puna was informative and humorous and the meal served to us on One Foot Island was amazing.
