We visited on a day tour and did the Vaka Cruise. What a beautiful place, with beautiful items. The water is crystal clear and a beautiful turquoise. Plenty of sea life, including some really big fish.

If you go to Aitutaki, you must must must make a visit to the Lagoon and go snorkeling if you can. It's absolutely beautiful! We went on a snorkeling tour, but you can also rent private charters to take you around

Third time we have stayed there, such a beautiful place. Right on the stunning lagoon, just so beautiful. Take one of the lagoon cruises to snorkel & swim with the Giant Trevallies. Food in the 2 restaurants was great!

The crystal clear waters of the Aitutaki Lagoon are just beautiful. The snorkelling is fantastic- you really do feel like you are swimming in a tropical fish tank!
