Rarotonga is the capital of our friendly little corner of the Pacific. Ours is a very small island at only 32 kms around the outer perimeter. It takes aproximately 40 minutes to circumnavigate which means all services and amenities on the island are just 20 minutes from wherever you are.
There are only 16,000 of us living in these islands. 10,000 live on Rarotonga with the rest living on 12 of our 15 islands. We are Polynesian, naturally friendly and openly welcome visitors to our shores like we have been doing for the past millenium or two. Everyone speaks English as well as the native Polynesian language.
Being the capital, Rarotonga has all that you would expect. There are two international banks on the island, both offering international banking services and ATM. There is a great variety of outlets with locally made arts and crafts, supermarkets with international brands and locally grown black pearls.
With more than 25 different restaurants scattered around the island ensuring much interesting dining for all guests be they staying in self catering accommodation, or hotels/resorts.
The Cook Islands is a great place to get married. Professional wedding planners put together a wedding ceremony that will fulfil your dream wedding day. Just plan on being here at least three clear working days to finalise arrangements.
