About Cook Islands

The Cook Islands is a small cluster of 15 islands surrounded by the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean somewhere in between Hawaii and New Zealand. The most popular resorts are in the capital, Rarotonga, and Avarua, which is also a popular dining out and market destination (hello fresh seafood!). On the west coast, Tamanu Beach Resort on Aitutaki Island is the perfect spot to sink into a hammock and soak up the sunset views. The oldest Pacific island, at around 18 million years old, is Mangaia located in the south, and features tall cliffs formed from volcanic activity and comes complete with fossils and a handmade staircase to legendary views. Read more about the Cook Islands in our destination guide to the South Pacific.
