Aitutaki Map

Aitutaki Atoll is roughly triangular in shape and its main land mass is the island of Aitutaki. At the top of the island is the location of the local airport. To the east is the island of Akitua, which is the point where early Polynesians first stepped foot on this breathtakingly beautiful region of Cook Islands.

There are 3 islands of volcanic origin. These are Aitutaki, Rapot and Moturakau. The remaining 12 motu are coral-based.
