Dive into a veritable aquarium at Aitutaki Lagoon, a pool of turquoise seawater surrounded by white sand and lively coral reefs. The water is so clear you will not need snorkeling gear, but certainly consider taking it if you want a closer look at the exotic marine life. To reach this lagoon, look for a boat tour that stops by, rent a private boat to drop you off for the day, or stay overnight at the nearby resort. The resort also provides a restaurant and restroom facilities. Use our Aitutaki sightseeing planner to add Aitutaki Lagoon and other attractions to your Aitutaki vacation plans.

  • I think the aitutaki lagoon is one of the most beautiful things in the world. It seems endless, with its blue colors that vary according to the depth of the sea (at most 5/6 meters). Its motu and islets inside are all corners of paradise (honeymoon island, one foot island and all the others). It is not a lagoon for snorkeling, in the sense that there are few fish. We unfortunately couldn't go out of the lagoon (over the reef) being traveling with our daughter, but they told us that over the reef we would find everything... We still have this lovely place in mind! Impossible to forget!
