This tiny island in Aitutaki's beautiful lagoon contains a post office and a single cabin that can be rented by visitors. Most visitors just come for the day to experience the tranquil location and to snorkel in the lagoon.

A great way to see the lagoons, and learn about the story of the island's name. The people are warm and very happy to share their culture and music.

One foot island is a beautiful little atoll in the Aitutaki lagoon, with white sand beaches & surrounded with warm, shallow waters to wade or swim in while enjoying the colorful fish.

We got the Passport stamp. Its the only thing to do besides relax on the island. Some tour companies have lunch there.

The views you get on this island is what they use on "Paradise on earth" posters. Not much to do, but it is short trip, a truly breathtaking views, and usually a part of some snorkeling tour. Definitely recommend

This whole area is a must see! The water, the sky, the sand! One Foot Island is beautiful, bought postcards and they were very fast in getting to North America! We got here with Bishops Tours. An Amazing Day!

Nice beach, bring your own post-cards if you want to post from here as the “post office” occasionally runs out. Apart from the post office most other motus are just as good

We went with Captain Puna of Ariki Adventures - would highly recommend! We booked ahead of time but you can always book when you get to the island.

Yup, there are a number of companies/ guides that would pick you up . Don’t forget to take your passport as you can get it stamped “ One Foot Island “.
