This is the island that features in the promos, travel sows etc. the lagoon, sand bar surrounding the island are what give Aitutaki the name of most beautiful lagoon in the world. A must visit

The quintessential perfect tropical island setting. Soft sandy beaches on one side with snorkeling opportunities and rocky beach combing on the other. Be sure to find out the story behind the name. Bring your passport to get it stamped at the smallest post office and bring postcards to mail.

Had a great time stopping here and visiting the post office and snorkelling while on a cruise. Sending postcards back home to everyone from the small post office in paradise was a must do! Fabulous to see that they were making the most of the site and trying encourage corals and fish close by!

Amazing place with an amazing story about how the island got its name. We got there via a Vaka Cruse, which we highly recommend too.

Did this as part of a tour, got to walk from the island out to a smaller sand island, very cool. They will stamp your passport as a visitor to one foot if you take it.

take a private charter . the extra cash will mean boat rides that last minutes not hours and snorkelling for as long as you want not them. take under water camera to take pictures of the dozen giant trevally that come into the shallows for a free feed.
