COOK ISLAND HOLIDAYS

The incredibly remote, satisfyingly secluded, invigoratingly rich and enchantingly beautiful Cook Islands are a true utopia, and perhaps, the best kept secret of the Pacific. Scattered across the vast open waters of the Pacific Ocean are 15 tiny islands. The idyllic islands, in such a pristine, untouched shape, seem otherworldly – perfect, white sand beaches, glistening, azure waters, colourful coral reef and the friendliest of people.

Things to do in the Cook Islands

  • Escape the stresses of everyday life by resting on these secluded isles.
  • Try your hand at an array of watersports from diving and snorkeling to kayaking and surfing.
  • Explore the main island of Rarotonga, the largest of the Cook Islands.
  • Hop on a plane or cargo ship to nearby islands to explore their unique terrains, beaches and traditional lifestyles. Not many visitors venture beyond the two first islands. As a result, trips to the outlying islands can be extremely rewarding.
  • Produce grows in the Cooks in abundance. From avocados, mangoes, organs, passion, fruit guava and noni, there are several unique and healthy fruits readily available.

The hot and tropical climate of the Cook Islands are highly conducive to outdoor activities. As a result, pack accordingly.

The Cooks are a beach destination. Therefore, beach attire and lightweight, comfortable clothing is highly advised. A warm sweater and a light, waterproof jacket are also good to have in case the temperatures drop at night or there is rain. It might be a good idea to throw in one smart outfit for dinner engagements or more formal locations.

Bring comfortable walking shoes and sandals. Sun protection is a must, even when it’s overcast. Prevent sun damage, bring plenty of sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and lip balm.

While many things can be purchased, some items to keep in mind are snorkelling equipment, beach towels, plastic or waterproof bags, a small torch and a pocket knife. A camera is a must-have, as are water sandals to protect your feet from the coral reef.

In addition to prescription medications, it’s a good idea to pack a first aid kit, anti-diarrhoea medication, pain relief medication, antibacterial cream and water-purification tablets and rehydrating solutions. Mosquito nets and insect repellent are also beneficial.

The sun-drenched, warm and unwavering temperatures of the Cook Islands make it a great year-round holiday destination. The seasons change ever so slightly, with the winter months (May to October) seeing temperatures ranging from 18°C to 28°C and 21°C to 29°C in the summer (November to April).

While humidity levels are not extremely high, the islands can receive heavy rainfall. Rainstorms are prevalent from December to April. However, they are very brief and will not ruin a day spent outside. The wet season (December to March) tends to be the hottest and most humid time of year and can receive about 25cm of rain each month.

The Rarotonga region remains consistently wet due to its higher elevation. The area can occasionally experience week-long downpours. Mangaia Island in the south tends to be the coolest, while the northern islands of Penrhyn and Rakahanga are the hottest.
