MY COOK ISLANDS
 
"Life there moves at the sort of pace which you feel God must have had in mind originally when He made the sun to keep us warm and provided the fruits of the earth for the taking..."
From "An Island to Oneself" by Tom Neale who lived alone on Suwarrow for 15 years

Mrs Robert Louis Stevenson called SUWARROW the most romantic island in the world.  It wasn't the inspiration for her husband's famous novel,  but it is a real treasure island in more ways than one.  For 15 years it was also home to just one man.  And more recently, it was claimed as the capital of a new Russian empire!

AITUTAKI is probably everyone's idea of a picture perfect tropical island and over the past few weeks it's had a starring role on UK television.   Three of the tiny islets or motus in its stunningly blue lagoon were the location for the reality TV show, "Shipwrecked".   Discover more about where it was filmed
