“Bucket List”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Probably the most stunningly beautiful place I've ever had the privilege to visit on this planet. The lagoon colors, the white sand, the crystal blue water. It's heaven on earth and you basically have it to yourself. This is the icon of the South Pacific.

“RIDICULOUSLY BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

This little island on the outer reaches of the lagoon is a must see on your trip to Aitutaki. The story behind the naming of the island is a beautiful one and the island is paradise on earth. You will not be disappointed with the white sandy beaches and crystal clear water that you can wade out to and reach remote sand banks all on your own. A must see

“The most beautiful place on earth”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

If you go to Aitutaki you must do a day trip to One Foot Island. I have never experienced water so clear and such a wonderful colour. You feel like you have been dropped in heaven. The snorkelling was good with a huge variety of fish also

“Lagoon trip and lunch”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Had a great day on the lagoon - constantly changing water and sky colours - rain and rainbow included - snorkelling and singing with Bishop`s Tours. One Foot Island for lunch with music and dancer included - friendly relaxed atmosphere. Recommended!

“Beautiful Island”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We actually went to One Foot Island in August 2012, it was part of out Day Trip to Aitutaki. What a beautiful island! Lovely sand and water with a colour you cannot believe.
There is a toilet, but do not expect anything modern. It was a rickerty little shed with a long drop toilet, certainly nothing fancy but extremely functional and a welcome to see.
On One Foot you can get your passport stamped at the post office, if you go with Bishops cruises, you can also buy stamps and post letters.
