Cook Islands Vacations & Stopovers


Islands Brochure request

Want to go to a place that is made up of a mix of coral atolls and volcanic islands, has an ideal climate, offers stunning scenery, is inhabited by smiling, spontaneous and warm-hearted people and is influenced by its Polynesian culture?

That place is the Cook Islands where there is no rush and time stands still. There is not a single traffic light to be seen! Once there, enjoy the beautiful white sand beaches and palm-fringed blue lagoons. You can be active or inactive – your choice. If the beach is sufficient for you or you are a watersports enthusiast – snorkeling and scuba diving included – you will be more than satisfied. If you want to do more, it is not a problem. At Goway we can customize a Cook Islands vacation to suit your own personal needs, interest and budget.

Take the main island of Rarotonga (there are a total of 15 islands that make up the Cook Islands). It is 32 kilometres/20 miles in circumference and is encircled by a “ring” road. You can take one of the island buses and stop off wherever you wish. You will see jutting pinnacles below which are flat terraces where bananas, coconuts, paw paw and pineapples grow in this lush vegetation. You will also have the opportunity to stop in small villages and get to know the islanders better.

The other major island is Aitutaki reached by plane from Rarotonga. It is an island of stunning beauty and a veritable Garden of Eden with its vast crystal-clear lagoon. It has a long interesting history and legends about the past abound here. Apart from enjoying the excellent beaches and facilities, try visiting some of the sacred ceremonial grounds of the forefathers of the Cook Islands and listen to the stories.

Stressed out or just lazy by nature, the Cook Islands can rejuvenate you or give you a relaxing vacation. But don’t forget all the other activities on offer.
