A classic picture post-card tourist destination, Aitutaki Island is composed of palm tree fringed tropical coastline with warm, shallow, turquoise blue waters, corals, colorful fishes and the blue skies. A 45 minute flight from the Rarotonga International Airport will get you here, where tourism facilities, although low key, are very well developed. Split into several beautiful villages which dot over this small island, Aitutaki has a large and beautiful lagoon which takes about an hour in a boat to cross.
Far away from main-stream tourism and technology, Akaiami is a small and elongated islet located at the opposite side of the Aitutaki Lagoon. This islet is owned and inhabited by a single family who runs a small lodge here for tourists. Essentially a remote attraction, this quiet, charming, unspoiled islet offers several recreational activities like hiking, fishing, swimming and kayaking. Another interesting attraction at Aitutaki is the One-Foot Island with blue lagoons and white sandy beaches where you can swim, snorkel, safari or walk about as if you owned this place.
