About The Cook Islands

The Cook Islands are a fascinating paradise where spectacular natural scenery blends with thousands of years of vibrant Polynesian culture. Cook Islanders still retain a strong sense of their heritage and traditional ways, which they incorporate into everyday life.
The Cook Islands are largely unspoiled by tourism and offer a rare opportunity for people to experience a different type of vacation.
On the main island of Rarotonga you will see craggy mountains, dense jungle, glorious white sand beaches and spectacular lagoons – a real Island Paradise.

The Cook Islands People and Lifestyle

The islands were colonised by Polynesians during the 7th and 8th centuries. James Cook, the islands take his name – sighted them in 1773 and in 1789. The Cook Islands economy is based on agriculture, fishing and tourism. Clam and pearl oyster farming have been developed. Tourism accounts for around 40% of GDP. A reduction in air services in the Pacific region has caused growth to fall.

Cook Island Maori and English are the most commonly spoken languages.

The Cook Islands - Getting There

Air New Zealand is the main airline offering flights to The Cook Islands with direct flights from Los Angeles, Auckland and Tahiti (via Air Rarotonga).

The Cook Islands - Getting Around

Bus: Buses travel on the half hour and hour clockwise and anti-clockwise between 7am and 4pm Mon to Sat with reduced Sunday services.

Car & Motorcycle: To drive a car the law requires you to obtain a Cook Islands driving license at the police station in Avarua. This simply requires you to bring your driver’s license from your country of residence, perhaps your passport and $15.00. To drive a scooter (or moped) you also are required legally to sit a small practical test. Fees for the license are NZ$15.00 and will be issued the same day.
