Mauke - the most easterly of the Cook Islands is about 45 minutes flying time from the capital island, Rarotonga - but a world away in terms of lifestyle. There are few tourists...I was the only one on the island when I visited. Everyone has time to stop and chat or at the very least give you a friendly wave, and the islanders are justly proud of a beautiful home. Some call it the garden of the Cook Islands. I would say simply...Mauke is magical.
