One Foot Island has been one of the most beautiful places on earth. This was before the tourism industry discovered the island and built a large hut on it. In addition, the organized lagoon cruises ship in the people by the truckload. While during my first visit we had been only six people in the boat and everyone found it's... More

If you are lucky enough to go to Aitutaki you must do a day trip to one foot island. We decided we wanted to do a small boat which only held 10 and decided to go with Kia Orana (from memory). We weren't picked up from our resort and taken to the boat where we were introduced to our captain... More

Emerging from the bright white sand and deep turquoise water, one foot island is a unique gem in a mind bogglingly beautiful lagoon. The pristine windward shore awash with coral relics while the lee shore offers that beautiful white sand. The water here is like an optical illusion. So clear as to be nearly invisible, yet in depth the blue... More

Beautiful island off Aitutaki in the Cooks. Visited it on The Vaka lagoon tour. Unbelievably blue water. Think there is a accommodation there also. 👍

We travelled with 3 young kids out to this island on a tour - one of the highlights of our trip. Simply stunning - one of the most beautiful places we've been to. Our young kids loved the boat trip, entertainment and the food on boat. Remember to take your passport to get your official stamp from the "Post office"

We stopped off at One Foot Island on our one day trip to Aitutaki and The Vaka Lagoon Cruise. Well worth the visit. Don't forget to take your passport so you can get it stamped at the smallest post office in the world :)

One foot island is well worth the visit to see the colours of the lagoon, swim in the warm water and explore island paradise- such a beautiful place to visit. Don't forget your passport to be stamped at the post office.

What a really special spot to spend some time. There is a tiny shop that sells postcards that will also stamp your passport for $2. The island is 1.2km round so can easily be circumnavigated at a leisurely pace. There is great snorkeling with in the channel. The sand bars where honeymooners can plant a coconut tree is easily accessible.... More

Amazing island to visit. The beach is lovely. You can hire a boat from Bishop tours for a drop off. Peaceful.

You can walk around this island in about 15 minutes. Watch out for the current if you swim off the beach.
