island life

The beating heart of our little paradise will capture yours. Rarotonga, the hub of the Cook Islands, has so much to see and do, yet remains unspoilt.

From chartering a boat to a remote sandbank with only a towel and a bottle of champagne, to climbing the rock face of Rarotonga’s Needle on a Cross-Island Trek, to sipping Tumunu bush beer in Atiu, or hearing the lulls of humpback whales as you dive the turquoise waters of Aitutaki.

In the Cook Islands you have the freedom and choice to create your ideal holiday experience.

The Cook Islands are laid back, carefree, and fun – which is why we like to think we’re the best tropical destination for couples. From romance and relaxation, to action and adventure, markets or gourmet dining, there’s something for every couple on every budget here.


Rarotonga guarantees a fun family holiday, where kids can experience the same kind of freedom that you enjoyed as a child! We are an easy destination, where you can snorkel, swim, play on the beach, or jump on a bike to explore the island.


There’s a huge variety of cafes and restaurants providing delicious food at prices similar to home. While you’ll find $3.50 beers on happy hour and $10 meals at the markets, you can also dine at high-end restaurants or have a gourmet platter delivered to your room.


Experience the brilliant blue sea by swimming, snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, diving, fishing, kite surfing, whale watching, and hopping on a glass bottom lagoon cruise.


Discover the great outdoors with a hike through the jungle or exploring on safari jeeps, 4WDs, quad bikes, or bicycles.


With a friendly Polynesian culture, the locals are genuine and inviting. You’ll see our amazing drumming and dancing talents at cultural shows, listen to church choirs singing on Sunday, and chat about island life at the markets and roadside stalls.
