Welcome to Mitiaro
Like on ‘Atiu and Ma’uke, the maketea of Mitiaro has many deep and mysterious caves, including the brilliant underground pools of Vai Nauri and Vai Marere. Mitiaro also has the remains of the Cook Islands’ only fort. The islanders on Mitiaro are great craftspeople and you’ll discover that the weaving, woodcarving and traditional outrigger canoes are all beautifully made. Another highlight is staying a few days in a homestay, either in a local’s private home or in one of three kikau cottages dotted around the tiny island's only settlement.
