Consisting of 15 islands and just a 4 hour flight from Auckland is the magical Cook Islands. Rarotonga, the main island is almost entirely surrounded by coral reef ensuring its protected beaches are idyllic and its accommodation is seldom from its shores. Only 32 kilometers in circumference, it is extremely easy to discover on scooter, the 'island bus', in a car or jeep. You will be captivated by the friendliness of the people, the lingering fragrance of frangipani and the relaxed pace of life.
Also popular with travelers is the beautiful island of Aitutaki, famous for its turquoise lagoon, sandy white beaches and spectacular marine life.
Like its famous black pearls, the Cook Islands possess a magic and beauty second to none.
