#1 of 20 in Parks in Cook Islands
Dive into a veritable aquarium at Aitutaki Lagoon, a pool of turquoise seawater surrounded by white sand and lively coral reefs. The water is so clear you will not need snorkeling gear, but certainly consider taking it if you want a closer look at the exotic marine life. To reach this lagoon, look for a boat tour that stops by, rent a private boat to drop you off for the day, or stay overnight at the nearby resort. The resort also provides a restaurant and restroom facilities. Use our Aitutaki sightseeing planner to add Aitutaki Lagoon and other attractions to your Aitutaki vacation plans.

  • The Resort The Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa - Cook Islands, despite the site appearing to be in its heyday, is in the process of total decline. In August 2018, during our honeymoon, it was in full renovation and we found ourselves among the bulldozers, mud and grumpy staff to which we did not want to work. The staff of the resort, in fact, laughed at the situation behind us making us feel out of place and unappreciated (especially with us Italians); old and broken sea deckchairs; dirty towels; overturned and unfit bungalows; the empty and fenced CSI-style hot tub. During dinner we had the second counts, if we stayed at the table beyond 9.30 pm they would kick us off the table carrying the bill and inviting us to get up. Attached you will find some photos of our unforgettable (unfortunately) Honeymoon. Trust those taken in person and not what you find online. We will remember our honeymoon, like a nightmare.
