Cook Islands Honeymoon
We do not know anyone who once they have been to the Cook Islands does not dream of going back.
These beautiful islands are perfect for a stopover on your way to or from Australia or New Zealand or a wonderful and relaxing Cook Islands honeymoon.
Warm sun and soft sand – this is the Cook Islands. Located in the South Pacific and made up of 15 different islands spread over an area the size of India with a population no bigger than a small country town, approx 14000 people. These unique and friendly Polynesians have their own language and government and enjoy a vigorous and diverse culture with significant differences between each island.
Despite some 70,000 visitors a year to the capital island Rarotonga, the Cook Islands are largely unspoiled by tourism. As the entire island is only 32 kilometres in circumference, getting around is easy. There are two main roads on Rarotonga, you can circle the island on the Ara Tapu sealed road, through the villages and past the beaches; or you can take the older inland road, which winds through fields of taro, pawpaw, bananas and local farmlands. There are no buildings taller than a Coconut Tree in the Cook Islands, stay in a family operated bungalow style accommodation with a kitchenette, or upper end resorts during your Cook Islands Honeymoon. There are many choices to suit budget and style.
A visit to the Cook Islands is not complete without seeing the beautiful island of Aitutaki. The breathtaking allure of it’s crystal clear turquoise waters and sparkling white beaches is an essential ingredient in any Cook Islands Honeymoon. This is a place of unsurpassed natural beauty and tranquility, providing a simple tonic to sooth away the pressures of the outside world.
Aitutaki is 220 kilometres north of Rarotonga and less than an hour’s flight away. It is partly volcanic and partly of atoll origin. It’s highest hill, Maungapu is said to be the top of Rarotonga’s Raemaru Peak, brought back by victorious warriors. The spectacular lagoon (45 kilometres around) is abundant with coloured fish of many varieties, its perimeter sprinkled with many small and charming uninhabited islands (motus).
Flights from North America to the Cook Islands do not operate everyday, flying time is approx 11 hour’s from LA to Rarotonga. The Cook Islands can either be your main destination or a stopover on the way to New Zealand or Australia; we also recommend whilst down this end of the world that you also visit one of the other jewels in the beautiful South Pacific Islands like Tahiti and Fiji.
