INTRODUCTION TO THE CAPITAL ISLAND OF RAROTONGA
This is an introduction to the Cook Islands and its capital island of RAROTONGA.  It's set to the Welcome Song from Te Arekarioi Nui, performed by the Cook Islands National Arts Theatre.  The video is just over 4 minutes 10 seconds long.

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.

TAKING A FLYING TOUR OF THE 'ISLAND OF THE BIRDS'
AITU -  the third largest and third most visited of the Cook Islands - is also known as Enuamanu which means land of the birds.  More species live there than on any of the other islands, and they include some of the world's rarest.  But there's much more to Atiu than just birds, as you'll find out.  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.






MANGAIA: GRANDFATHER OF THE PACIFIC
Mangaia is not a typical tropical island...many of its roads are rubble strewn, and evidence of its great age is everywhere in razor sharp, fossilised coral formations known as makatea.  Scientists estimate the island is at least 18 million years old.  But don't be put off, because visitors are rewarded with a unique experience which includes meeting some of the most friendly and welcoming people in the world.
