Stunning lagoon. Clear waters and sand. Just breath taking to see. Make sure you do a lagoon cruise which takes you out to other Islands to have a fun snorkelling experience.

Absolutely amazing colours in the water - stunning scenery. No wonder it's known as the most beautiful lagoon in the world. Snorkelling is excellent - perfectly clear water, with giant clams and great trevally. We did the day trip from Rarotonga and wnet around the Aitutaki Lagoon on board the 21 metre Vaka Titi-Ai-Tonga which is based on ancient Polynesian boats. A terrific way to get around, with a bbq lunch on board, finishing with a visit and swim time at One Foot Island where for $NZ2, a passport stamp can be had.
A great day on the lagoon.

This small island has beautiful, lush scenery, views and beaches. Limited infrastructure. One highlight was tender ride from ship to shore through narrow coral reefs. Surprised that tourist shops did not take dollars, not trying to be ugly American- just lost sales.

Wow! We were told Marlon Brando, John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe travelled here, independently, to see what all the fuss was about. They left speechless., we did too.

It is regarded as the most beautiful lagoon in the world 🌎. It is absolutely stunning.

Apparently, Marlon Brando, John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe travelled here independently to see what all the fuss was about. To state Aitutaki is the most beautiful lagoon in the world 🌎 is a very bold statement...It is!

White Pearl Charters and Leo our skipper, was our choice for the best snorkeling experience in the fabulous Aitutaki Lagoon.

Leo took us to various Diving spots, we saw Turtles, Bone Fish, Giant Clams and small ones, and swam with and fed the giant Trevally's & Wrasse.
Leo has a wealth of knowledge of fishing and Aitutaki.

Mere your lunch of very much appreciated, best sandwiches, fruit & Cake.

We will be back again soon.

Sarah and her amazing team in the restaurant, Bailey deserves special mention in that team too. They went above and beyond to ensure we had the most fabulous time. Thanks to Sarah, we'll definitely go back

Getting out on the lagoon is a must. Lots of operators with tours, but we took the one from our accommodation- Matriki Beach Huts. Lovely and small tour, swimming with turtles, clouds of tropical fish, and the most amazing water and colours. We had a drop off one day to one of the motu and spent several hours there- fabulous experience
