There are a few hotels in this area of the island, we stayed at Tai Roto Bay (reviewed separately) and had access to this beach either fallowing along the shoreline (via shortcut) or going around the main road to arrive at the Aitutaki Village - it's a great place thanks exactly to that hotel and its Blue Lagoon Restaurant as that's where you will get your food/drinks from.

There are no loungers here etc. as the only ones belong to the AV hotel but either way people just end up swimming in the water/walking on the sandbars - it's not the traditional type of beach, since the either island and the Aitutaki Lagoon aren't - this is not just for the eyes type of feast, but I would say it more is than for the actual beach activities/chilling - however it is spectacular.

TIP: there are some low tides in the lagoon and the shoreline can change drastically - which was also fun to see/experience

A picturesque beach with fine golden sand, looking out across the lagoon to distant islands. The water is absolutely clear and although generally gently shelving, there are a number of deeper swimming holes close to the shore.

By any standard, O'otu Beach is impressive with its white sand and clear water but if you have already been on, or are planning to be on, an Aitutaki Lagoon cruise or private charter, you can give this beach a miss as it is equaled or surpassed by the beaches surrounding the islands in the lagoon in terms of both beauty and swimming experience. There are no snorkeling opportunities at O'otu given it is all white sand and no coral or rock. The Blue Lagoon restaurant there allows a comfortable view of the beach and water area while consuming a coffee/drink or a meal (see separate review).

Kia Orana! During my stay at Inano Beach Bungalows,i would walk to nearby Ootu Beach to swim and also hang out with the warm and welcoming locals.It's a beautiful beach and i enjoyed spending time there. If you enjoy exploring and swimming in beautiful beaches,you should visit this beach when u visit Aitutaki and i'm sure you will be pleased. Meitaki

I wasn't lucky to be at this beach during sunshine; it was raining but I got to see if when I left for One Foot Island a few times and it's a great place!

This might be considered by some as the shallow end of the pool. Never mind that..because it is shallow for the most part here. It is great for lazing in the water, watching children play and the sailing club zips out of here too.
