About Cook Islands

The Cook Islands are a self-governing parliamentary democracy in free association with New Zealand, located in Polynesia, in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, between French Polynesia (Society Islands) to the east and Tonga to the west. This archipelago has 15 inhabited islands spread out over 2.2 million square kilometers of ocean with no land between the tropical Cook Islands and Antarctica. With the same time zone and latitude (south, rather than north) as Hawaii, the islands are sometimes thought of as “Hawaii down under”. Though smaller, it reminds some elderly visitors of Hawaii before statehood without all the large tourist hotels and other development. (source)

Nestled in the heart of Polynesia, the Cook Islands are north-east of New Zealand in the Pacific Ocean. The Cook Islands are a dream getaway – the fantasy of a desert island retreat. Secluded and off the beaten path, this country of 15 small islands hosts only 7,500 North American visitors a year, making it a truly unique destination.

Surrounded by a sapphire-blue lagoon and fine, white sand, this romantic South Pacific paradise is the ultimate place to unwind. The way of life may be laid-back, but you’ll still find plenty of heart-pumping activities to enjoy. Head out on the water to explore the golden reef: an unforgettable scuba diving, snorkeling, or kayaking experience. Dine on the Cook Islanders’ favorite dish of suckling pig, or freshly caught seafood, cooked right on the beach. Explore the island’s rainforests, fresh water streams and waterfalls as you trek in the shadow of grand volcanic ridges. No matter where you travel, from the ancient marae (traditional meeting places) to spiritual monuments and stunning private islands, you’ll find friendly faces, rich culture, and stunning views.

The best way to get around this small island is to make like the locals and jump on a scooter. It’s easy to get your licence and you can loop the entire island in about an hour. There’s nothing quite like feeling the warm breeze against your skin as you go beach-hopping, check out the shops, or discover some of the island’s more rural areas – just watch out for roaming dogs and chickens. Taking something home is easy too. Head to the markets to buy iridescent shells, sarongs and jewelry made from the region’s distinctive black pearls, or watch as the local women practice the art of quilting, known here as tivaevae.
