We visited for only 15 minutes on a lagoon tour. This island is incredibly picturesque and we would love to come back and stay for a week.

This island was a stop on our cruise around Aitutaki. It is a beautiful island with both a historical story - TEAL stopover - and a modern story - location for a number of reality tv shows. I would love to return.

We only stayed in Akaiami for a few minutes as a stopover on the Kia Orana cruise; it's a nice island, but the accommodation there doesn't look so nice. I like the way we did it.

Wonderful, unspoilt nature. Best swimming beach on Aitutaki and an excellent snorkelling spot. Highly recommended.

Private beach... No, it is for everyone but seldom there is anyone there.... So, you can have it for yourself. It is desolate and perhaps because the lagoon cruises and private charters choose to go to Moturakau, Maina and One foot island instead. However Akaiami...More

Akaiami is one of the 22 motu (islets) within Aitutaki Lagoon and one of the three visited by most of the lagoon cruises. Like all of Aitutaki, Akaiami is gorgeous with white sand beaches and turquoise waters. Akaiami is more developed than the other two...More
