Tapuaeta’i MotuAitutaki, Cook Islands

Not too many years ago, Aitutaki was a well-kept secret. Tapuaeta’i Motu (One Foot Island) is an uninhabited island of Aitutaki atoll, part of the Cook Islands. Its bluer-than-the-sky lagoon, friendly locals and lack of resort accommodation meant many travellers stayed on Rarotonga or visited for the day. Big mistake. Tapuaeta’i Motu is where it's at!

Fringing Aitutaki Lagoon are 21 tiny islands including Tapuaeta’i Motu. Get dropped off with a picnic, and pretend you’ve washed up on your own deserted isle. Guide Teking will personally show you several of his favourite diving locations where you will se an abundance of tropical fish, turtles, large clams and stunning coral. It's all pretty chilled affair with Teking setting the scene pretty early on with his dry sense of humour mixed with his intimate local knowledge of the island and environment.

After a day's snorkelling you'll enjoy a delish BBQ lunch that includes fresh tuna, fruits, salad and sweet banana...set against a backdrop of a dazzling blue sky.


Around US$80 for an adult.
