The 15 islands in the Cook Islands are located in the heart of the Pacific, halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand. An oasis of freedom with crystal blue waters, white sandy beaches, warm weather all year round and authentic, friendly locals. Under 30 minutes from plane to any beach, it's so easy to do as much or as little as you like in the Cook Islands. Come share our Kia Orana spirit and discover why everyone loves a little paradise. The main island of Rarotonga is essentially hub of the Cook Islands. There's so much to see and do in Rarotonga, yet it remains unspoilt; only 32km right around, getting anywhere takes no time - there are no traffic lights, no McDonald’s and no buildings taller than the tallest coconut tree. It's easy to fall in love with a little paradise. Aitutaki is the second most visited island in the Cook Islands and is only a short 50 minute flight away thanks to our national airline carrier, Air Rarotonga. You'll find that your breath is taken away the minute your eyes set sights on the pristine blue of Aitutaki's lagoon - which is arguably the most beautiful lagoon in the world, complete with luscious coral gardens and abundant with sea life.
