Welcome to Pukapuka
Well known for both its sensuous dancers and beautiful girls, remote Pukapuka is in many ways closer to Samoa than to the rest of the Cook Islands. Pukapuka’s most famous resident was the American travel writer Robert Dean Frisbie, who lived here in the 1920s and wrote several evocative accounts of his life on the islands. Pukapuka sustained severe damage during the 2005 cyclones. In 2015 Pukapuka achieved 100% electricty sustainabilty through a solar energy network, and it is hoped this initiative will encourage emigre Pukapukans to resettle on their home island.
