“Amazing island”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Stunning island we walked the whole way round and on the far side is the most amazing beach we were the only ones there for about an hour. Great place to stay one or two night. We also heard many locals get married on the beautiful island. A must to do and yes get your passport stamped! We went with a cruise.

“Paradise!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had a delightful time on this island during our lagoon cruise. We enjoyed great barbeque, walked around the island and swam in the fabulous clear water of the lagoon. A picture paradise. Not to be missed when in the Cook Islands.

“Do not miss this!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

What a beautiful place! We did a full day lagoon cruise with Teking Lagoon Cruises and there are no words to describe the beauty. You also get a passport stamp on One Foot.

“"Honeymoon Paradise!"”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Nearly 15 years ago, my husband and I honeymooned on One Foot Island at the McBirney Beach Batch for 5 nights. Hands down it was the best part of our month-long honeymoon. We had complete isolation (the imagination wanders!) except for the island cat and chickens. Bathing in rain water, eating grilled fresh (caught while snorkeling) fish, sunsets & sunrises, and sleeping to the whir of the palms... PARADISE! (But not for the timid)
