An island famed for appearing in reality television shows, the uninhabited Moturakau boasts lush natural scenery and blue waters ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and boating. Take a short jungle walk through the island forest and look for various plants and birds. As you walk across the warm sand, keep an eye out for coconut crabs. Though harmless, these creatures can pinch your feet with surprising strength. Reach the island by joining a lagoon tour or by renting a boat in Aitutaki.

Spent the day by ourselves on the island for about 5 hours. Brought food and drinks, swimming in some spots but pretty shallow and have to sneek through coral. Very nice and secluded! pretty surreal..... more »
Lots of fish life around & hermit crabs, the crabs were bigger than I have seen before, kids would love this, but the swimming is the main attraction here in the beautiful water. more »
