Beautiful Blue Water.

Located in what feels like the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and New Zealand. There’s 15 Cook Islands spread over an area of 850,000 square miles. Rarotonga is the main Island and the Island you fly into, the entire island of Rarotonga is about 35 km and it takes approximately 45 minutes to drive completely around the island. This makes it quick to get anywhere on the island and it’s easy to navigate since there is only one main road.

The only island we visited was Rarotonga and it was the perfect place for us to “Love a Little Paradise.” Rarotonga is the perfect place to Hike, Snorkel, and enjoy the sunset with a cocktail in hand.

Love a Little Paradise

We really enjoyed the contrast of being in nature versus a city and loved how it felt as though we had the entire Island to ourselves. Rarotonga is a great place to unplug and really unwind from all of life’s craziness.

    Such a post. My husband and I run a diving center in Cyprus. We want to offer something more than diving to our customers, something different, thought provoking, unique and absolutely appealing. Open to any ideas? Complimentary refreshments already a given…
