The definitive guide to ALL of the Cook Islands....a trusted, independent source since 2004...created with help from and dedicated to the people of the Islands.  Kia Manuia (may you walk this way again)
Only a handful of tourists visit MITIARO each year, even though it's a short flight from Rarotonga.  But visitors will discover a neat and beautiful place with crystal clear pools in limestone caves. The only freshwater lakes in the Cooks also cover two thirds of the island and  they're teeming with prawns and a type of eel that islanders compare to caviar
  "A  magical untouched little island gem in the South Pacific. Definitely worth a visit !"  Mitiaoro through a visitor's eyes

Mitiaro from the air
