The Islands on Video

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE COOK ISLANDS: PART 1 OF 2
This is an ambitious attempt to capture the essence of the Cook Islands.   In it, I'll take you on a journey around all 15 little "pieces of paradise" that make up this unique nation.  In part one, we'll visit eight of the nine islands in the southern group.  The video is 10 minutes long

So...even if you're not planning a visit yourself, I hope I can share with you why I think this is a very special place.  Have a great journey!

And if this film wets your appetite...
I've created some more detailed films about four of the islands.   Each is about four minutes long.  Click on the underlined island name to watch the film.

RAROTONGA:  The capital island
AITUTAKI:  Nearest neighbour of Rarotonga.   As well as a stunning, turquoise blue lagoon, it also boasts the best beach in the whole of the Australia-Pacific region, as voted by travel agents.
MAUKE:  The garden of the islands, with some surprising attractions
MANGAIA:  Ancient, rugged and not beautiful in the traditional sense..but an island of great beauty
