- Manihiki Island

IATA Acredited
Manihiki Island located in the northern group of the Cook Islands lies 1160 kilometers north of Rarotonga. Experience Polynesia as it was 50 years ago with your visit to Manihiki, one of the Pacific's most beautiful atolls. Experience an island very few people have ever visited. The flying time is approximately 4 hours in a small turboprop aircraft and flights operate only once per week. A larger aircraft is expected to be on line in the near future. Manihiki's lagoon is straight out of a story book with many motu's also known as islets, strung along the reef which are always warm and the marine life is brightly colored. There is excellent swimming, snorkeling and diving.
Manihiki MapManihiki
Manihiki, noted for black pearls have several pearl farms dotting the lagoon. It is incredible to view these farms and realize that some islanders live year round in the middle of the lagoon with only a boat tied to a pillar for company. Imagine being able to view the intricate process of how the oyster is seeded!
