Aitutaki Island Beach Guide
Along the northwest coast of the island discover a string of gorgeous, palm-fringed white-sand beaches fronting several luxurious resorts, including the 5-star Pacific Resort Aitutaki, a boutique resort nestled between a jungle-clad hillside and a beachfront palm grove just metres from idyllic Aitutaki Lagoon.
One Foot Island
(Tapuaeta’i Motu) – Pick your own spot to sunbathe on the fine sugar-white sand of Tapuaeta’i Motu, more commonly known as One Foot Island.
Wander barefoot along sand bars at low tide, enjoy a perfect picnic and go snorkelling, scuba diving or fishing in the turquoise waters that gently lap the beach of this idyllic island.
Easy to reach by boat on a day trip, One Foot Island is located in the south of Aitutaki Lagoon, one of the best beaches in the South Pacific.
Dig your toes into the gorgeous, soft sugar-white sands of Samade Beach overlooking Aitutaki Lagoon on secluded Ootu Point on the northeast cape of Aitutaki Island.
Come on a day trip or stay overnight and longer at the 4-star Samade on the Beach Resort and be pampered with style.
Sitting just 50m away from Ootu Point, lies the tiny, private atoll of Akitua Motu, home to a gorgeous white-sand beach and the luxury Aitutaki Lagoon Resort and Spa.
Relax in the attractive overwater bungalows, sunbathe on the exquisite beach, swim in the turquoise waters of Aitutaki Lagoon or explore tiny motus in a kayak.
Unwind on the gorgeous white-sand beach that surrounds Akaiami Motu, home to the stunning palm-fringed Kaiami Beach and the luxury Akaiami Beach Lodge.
