It was awarded “Australia’s Leading Beach” at the World Travel Awards held in Sydney in June 2008. The island is uninhabited, but you can buy small things at the local shop. The beaches of OneFoot Island are white, and the water is crystal clear. This is not only a paradise for divers and snorkelers but also for those wanting to enjoy the beach and the sand. Climate: Since the islands are South of the equator, the seasons are opposite to those of Europe and North America. The cooler, drier season is from April to November and the warmer, more humid season is from December to March. The average temperature is 27 Celsius. Regularly listed as one of the most romantic places on Earth, and the second-most visited island in the Cooks, Aitutaki is famous for its impossibly crystal-clear, turquoise water of its central lagoon, tiny motus (islets) and pristine, palm-shaded beaches. Inland, Aitukati's rolling hills are a patchwork of banana plantations and coconut groves. 220 kilometres from Rarotonga and easily accessible by air, flying over Aitutaki is breathtaking. The immense, turquoise lagoon appears to float on the deeper blue of the Pacific, and is speckled with 15 uninhabited motus and brightly coloured corals just below the shimmering liquid surface. this is the ultimate blue lagoon. A leisurely walk to the summit of Aitutaki's highest peak, Maungapu, might only reach an elevation of a little over 120 metres, but it delivers sweeping views that are sure to leave you breathless. Another popular spot is the beautiful One Foot Island, where the TV show Survivor was filmed. Boasting one of the world's largest coral lagoons, it is with good reason that snorkelling, fishing and diving are popular on this island paradise, as is simply finding the perfect beachside spot and not budging for anything other than a refreshing drink or delectable bite to eat.
