EVEN AS YOU EXPERIENCE IT,
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU ARE SEEING.
The colors and sites of the lagoon are simply indescribable. No pictures do it justice. From the crystal clear turquoise waters to the white sand bars and the uninhabited tiny little islands you will feel there is no world outside the protection of the reef. The Aitutaki lagoon is known as one of the most magnificent in the Pacific and one of the largest in the world (19.4 square miles). A true paradise for swimmers, snorkelers, scuba divers and fishermen. Discover the lagoon on a the lagoon cruise, with a local instructor on a Hobie Catamaran, or paddle your way around in a kayak and visit as many of the uninhabited islands as you please.
AITUTAKI LAGOON IS UNQUESTIONALBLY A PACIFIC ISLANDS HOLIDAY DESTINATION YOU SHOULD SEE BEFORE YOU DIE.
The outer reef abounds with a marine life and towards the end of the year (October till December) the great whales come to play. The huge protected lagoon provides perfect conditions for kite-surfers, catamaran and dinghy sailors and paddlers. Home of international sailing competitions and ever growing Kit-Surfing Community, Aitutaki lagoon competes yearly for the world title. The annual watersport highlight is of course the "MOTU 2 MOTU" race in December which brings together outrigger canoe paddlers from all over the Pacific. Submerge into a limitless blaze of colors and be amazed. See the sand bar in front of One Foot Island and know instantly this is a magical backdrop for two people in love to say "YES". A world of happiness reflected in the water. Away from everything. Take it along with you.
