Ease into Rarotonga’s holiday spirit with a relaxed combination of snorkelling, hiking and casual dining, before hopping north to Aitutaki and exploring one of the South Pacific’s finest lagoons. Definitely find time to attend a wildly entertaining Island Night.
From Aitutaki, fly to rocky and remote ‘Atiu. Sample the local coffee and tumunu (bush beer), swim in shimmering underground pools, and discover ‘Atiu’s rare and idiosyncratic birdlife. If your budget permits, return to Rarotonga and fly south to sleepy Mangaia for reef fishing and to explore the island’s fascinating burial caves.
