Aitutaki Lagoon Beach

With an average water temperature of 26 degrees Celsius, there is never a bad time to dive into the crystal-clear waters of Aitutaki Lagoon Beach in the Cook Islands. Thousands of fish roam the waters of this lagoon and the water’s visibility provides snorkelers the perfect opportunity to see them. It has been said that the water on this island possesses every shade of blue and the sand is angelically white. This remote island is the perfect escape from all of life’s stress and will remind just how naturally beautiful the planet is.

Getting There

We recommend you fly to Auckland, New Zealand from where you can get a direct flight to the Cook Islands. Its gateway, Rarotonga, seems ridiculously remote, once-a-week flight from Los Angeles with Air New Zealand. A 45-minute flight north of Rarotonga, Aitutaki’s tiny airport is delightfully laid-back. North Americans, Europeans, Asians and travelers from around the globe can easily get a flight to Auckland.
