Beautiful with excellent snorkelling. Snorkelling is good off the beach many places. Best way to see the 'wide areas of the lagoon' is bt going on a lagoon cruise.

Can't believe how beautiful. The perfect island lagoon. Went with the King who was knowledgeable and entertaining. Lunch was fantastic. He took us out on good Friday when most tours were not going. Can't thank him enough.

If you have ever wondered where that gorgeous, tropical, palm-tree framed, blue lagoon screensaver shot was taken...well I found it in Aitutaki, Cook Islands. The lagoon is huge and is filled with indescrible shades of blue. The people are beautiful, friendly and welcoming. And why...More
