DISCOVER YOUR OWN BLUE LAGOON
Stunningly beautiful AITUTAKI was the location for the US reality TV series "Survivor Cook Islands" and the UK's own version, "Shipwrecked".   Aitutaki is the most visited island after Rarotonga.   And it's crystal clear, turquoise blue lagoon has to be seen to be believed.  Click here to watch that video.

TAKE A TOUR OF MAGICAL MAUKE
MAUKE is about 45 minutes flying time from Rarotonga but there are few visitors.  But those who venture to this remarkable island discover an unspoiled paradise with hidden treasures and some of the most friendly people you could ever wish to meet.   Click here to watch the video.

Scientists say MANGAIA is at least 18 million years old, and evidence of that great age is everywhere in the rocky landscape.  It's not beautiful in the usual sense of a tropical island, but it has greate beauty.  Click here to watch the video

MAGICAL MAUKE 
Mauke is one of the most accessible of the outer islands, but there are few visitors.  I can't recommend it too highly.  It's a truly magical place, and I hope you'll see why as you watch this short film.  The video was shot in Spring, 2006 and is 3 minutes 35 seconds long.






ATIU: LAND OF THE BIRDS (AND MUCH MORE)
Atiu is also known as Enuamanu which means land of the birds.  But there's much more to this, the third largest of the Cook Islands.  This is an introduction to a unique place where tourism is still in its infancy.  Visitors can expect to be treated as guests and discover fascinating places and warm and friendly people.  

The music is Atiu Enua (Kapa Rim) bny Piritau Nga.  It's from the the islanders' award winning performance at Te Maeva Nui 2007 (the annual cultural festival of music and dance).
