Garner ideas about what to see in the Cook Islands, from Rarotonga’s mountains and beaches to Aitutaki’s lagoon motus

The Cook Islands offer the quintessential image of the South Pacific: sugary white-sand beaches fringed with lustrous coconut palms, coral reefs teeming with bright tropical fish, bubble-gum blue ocean stretching as far as the eye can see. Our specialists can curate a trip focused purely on exploring the Cooks Islands’ attractions, or suggest ways you can incorporate an island stay into a wider Australasia tour.

Places to go on the Cook Islands include Rarotonga, the main entry point, where you might wish to explore beyond the beach by taking a 4x4 into its jungle-clad mountainous interior. Then, if time allows, our specialists would encourage you to make the short flight to Aitutaki. You can take boat trips around its dreamy lagoon, stopping at motus (islets) to picnic and snorkel.
