Frequently Asked Questions
Have you spent the past year dreaming of desert island views and soft sandy beaches? In that case, you’d better start planning a holiday to the Cook Islands. This archipelago of 15 islands can be found in the Pacific Ocean, tucked away between Hawaii and New Zealand. Between December and April, this part of the world can fall victim to bad weather and cyclones, so a great time to visit is in the months on either end of this time like October and November or June and May.

You probably know all about the kinds of activities you can do in a place like this. Sunbathing and sipping colourful cocktails on the beach are hobbies that anyone can pick up when they’re on a vacation. If you want to expand your horizons beyond the beach bar, take a trip to Aitutaki’s turquoise lagoon. Aitutaki is the second most-visited island of the collection which is covered in banana plantations and coconut groves. The lagoon is decreed by locals as the most beautiful in the world. Local legend says that the island is a giant fish that is clinging to the seabed and it’s tallest hill Maungapu, a mere thirty minutes walk from the lagoon, is said to be the top of another island, Rarotonga’s, Raemaru mountain that was chopped off and brought back by victorious Aitutaki warriors. The lagoon is ideal for snorkelling, diving and kite-surfing, while anglers battle to catch the infamous fighting bonefish. Learn more about the secretive culture of the people who lived here in the past at the Punarei Culture Village. Here, tourists interested in finding out about cultural practices such as making umukai, or sharing stories of the ancient past and visiting sacred and scenic sites will be able to spend a fun afternoon absorbing the information provided.
There’s nothing quite like tasting the local culinary offerings to get a real feel for your vacation environment. In Aitutaki, bananas, coconuts and tropical fruits feature heavily on the menu. Your meal is likely to be served on a plantain leaf and you’ll dine outside to make the most of the balmy weather. Carnivores needn’t worry about their tastes being catered for, as you’ll be able to find pork, beef, lamb and chicken on offer. Ask about maniota or kumara if you see it being dished out, as these are traditionally added to meals after being cooked for hours in earthen ovens to give them a smokey flavour. Seafood will also feature, and you will see options including sea urchins, crab and even sea grapes.
Rarotonga is home to the Cook Islands’ main town- called Avarua. This is a laid-back place, so there’s no need to pack any formal clothing for a meal here. There are two harbours to explore and you can also check out the National Museum and the Para O Tane Palace, which was renovated so access to the external part is provided to visitors. The chief of the area, Makea Takau, signed the treaty that accepted the island’s status as a British protectorate here in 1888.
If you like to stretch your legs on holiday, the Cross-Island Track on this main island is the perfect hiking trail for you. This 3.7 mile loop trail will lead you past spectacular scenery and views. You’ll be able to cool down in the waterfall and can even engage in a spot of bird watching if you slow down and camouflage yourself in the lush greenery. A top tip for solo hikers is to set off in a north-south direction as you stand less chance of getting lost when following the orange track markers, although you are likely to encounter a friendly local or fellow walker to help you on your way if you are in any doubt.
To pick up gifts from your friends and loved ones back home, head over to the Punanga Nui Market, which takes place every Sunday at Rarotonga Wharf. You can mingle with the locals, sample some of the homemade snacks and even pick up souvenirs like beautiful handmade crafts.
