The Best Kept Secret in South Pacific Bonefishing
The islands were named by British explorer, Captain James Cook, when he arrived there in 1771, and while this island nation is in free association with New Zealand, the culture is distinctly Polynesian. The local people are lovely and hospitable, and the islands are resplendent in rich traditions passed down from their Tahitian ancestors and many of their own.
The Cook Islands offer outstanding recreation opportunities, from fishing to snorkeling and relaxation. Aitutaki is home to some of the most pristine, white-sand beaches and water the color of a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin, and for this reason, it is an ideal destination for devout anglers, couples, and families alike. The fact that non-stop flights run from Los Angeles to Rarotonga make this destination impossibly easy to get to from the United States, which means you can be sipping that cold drink out of a coconut much sooner than you think.
