Aitutaki is in the Southern Group of the Cook Islands, in the South Pacific Ocean. Cook Islands is a South Pacific nation that consists of 15 islands, with Tonga to the West, and Society Islands to the East. The island of Aitutaki is 18.05 square kilometers (6.97 square miles), and has beautiful marine life, colorful coral reefs, and white sand beaches! Aitutaki has one of the most pristine lagoons in the world, that has countless shades of blue. I refer to it as, "The Maldives of the South Pacific".
My favorite spots around the Aitutaki Lagoon were the beautiful Heaven Sandbar, Honeymoon Island (Maina), and the incredible One Foot Island (Tapuaeti)! It truly is one of the most stunning tropical places I have ever seen, in the South Pacific!
