This tiny island in Aitutaki's beautiful lagoon contains a post office and a single cabin that can be rented by visitors. Most visitors just come for the day to experience the tranquil location and to snorkel in the lagoon.

This place is a small island in the lagoon. It has an amazing history. You must go to find out what it is. The water is warm, crystal clear and fish friendly. Take the Te King snorkelling cruise which includes the island visit.

Excursions to One Foot Island are very beautiful. The island is in the south of Aitutaki Lagoon and the cruises often include spending some time in different locations in the lagoon. Bring your swimming things.

A very beautiful place and probably what people come to Aitutaki to see. The giant clams were cool as was the sand bar you could walk to at low tide. There were giant trevally (over a meter long) and not too many sea cucumbers. We...More
