Like a place you've only seen in the movies. Bring your passport for a one-in-a-lifetime stamp but also bring your reef shoes if you plan to make the 20 min walk around the island. You could always choose to swim it as well.

That's just a lovely little island you must visit. The lagoon ist just amazing. Don't forget your passport to get the original "One Foot Island" stamp in your passport. You get them in the little building/Shop.

History is charming, lagoon boat ride fantastic and snorkelling around the island just magic. If you are in Aitutaki you must visit One Foot Island.

The water is so crystal clear. They have made a couple of man made reefs to allow you to snorkel and look at the fish. Other than that its just pure relaxation, just swim and enjoy! You can get your passport stamped here also.

We stopped here for snorkeling and an island lunch with yellow fin tuna cooked right on the boat. Many tiny hermit crabs were running all over the beach. Must visit here, so blue and clear!

Great place to relax while doing lagoon cruise. With the short swim from one island to the other, snorkelling here is fabulous.
