Cook Islands holidays by Cox & Kings

With more than 1,000 years of Polynesian culture and some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in the South Pacific, the 15 islands that make up the Cook Islands are scattered over an expanse of the Pacific Ocean the size of western Europe.

The main island of Rarotonga and the atoll of Aitutaki have over a thousand years of Polynesian culture and feature some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in the South Pacific. As well as offering a plethora of white sandy beaches and turquoise lagoons, the warmth of the welcome you will receive from locals will enhance your experience.
