Cook Islands Holidays,  Cook Islands Holiday Packages Overview

The Cook Islands are scattered over a very large expanse of the South Pacific between the French Polynesia and Samoa. The archipelago of 15 beautiful islands is far-flung, remote and the dream destination for anyone who wants to escape the modern world. With centuries of Polynesian history and spectacular scenery, these islands are definitely an explorer's dream come true.

Rarotonga is the most visited destination in the Cook Islands and the largest island of the archipelago. The island is a fascinating mix of white sand beaches, dense jungles and mountains. Life in Rarotonga is very relaxed and laid back. There are a number of beautiful beaches on the island for relaxing.

The locals in Rarotonga are quite active and therefore the island also offers a number of options when it comes to outdoor activities like tennis, squash, bush walking, fishing, scooters, horse riding, biking, diving and snorkelling.

Cook Islands are much more than Rarotonga. Moving away from it, you'll discover a number of other beautiful islands like Aitutaki, a hook shaped island that is again quite popular with tourists because of its large coral lagoons with tropical fish and large clams. Surrounding Aitutaki are many smaller islands that are still uninhabited.

Aitu is another island with limestone caves and coffee plantations. The islands of Mangaia and Mitiaro still have traditional villages where life goes on as it has for centuries. The Cook Islands are also home to rarely visited destinations and islands like the pearl fields of Manihiki and Penrhyn.
