  • Planning for climate change in the Cook Islands

    With the Cook Islands facing cyclones that are projected to be windier and bring more intense rainfall, government agencies are seeking to better understand the risks as well as plan for how communities can best adapt to the changes. More intense cyclones are just one of the likely consequences of climate change with temperatures, sea levels and ocean acidification all projected to significantly increase within 20 years. The Cook Islands worked with the Australian Government's Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program (PASAP) to: • Review its climate change and disaster risk management activities • Map likely areas at most risk from climate change • Undertake assessments of vulnerability and adaptation options in outer islands • Develop a Joint National Action Plan for Cli...

    Try to imagine a life on your very own private island. Cook Island is the perfect opportunity to make that dream a reality. While the main islands comprising the Florida Keys are connected by a series of bridges, Cook Island is one of the exclusive and private "off-the-grid" islands to be found offshore. Accessible only by boat, Cook Island, just off the tip of Big Pine Key, is a 67-acre, sensitively developed island, a rustic throwback to the original Keys lifestyle. The island is located 35 minutes away from Key West, and roughly three hours from Miami making it the perfect weekend getaway. The property has been meticulously restored and modernized into a luxurious, casually elegant, family compound. Upon docking your boat and walking down your private observation pier, you’re greeted by...

March 1997 A disturbing report on how islanders found themself struggling for survival after foreigners bought their country's main assets. After years of borrowing, the government found itself with debts beyond its capacity.Fed up with bankrolling its former colony, New Zealand finally pulled the economic plug. Cook Islands' Prime Minister, Sir Geoffrey Henry denies embezzlement after the collapse of the Sheraton Hotel project, doubling the national debt. To recoup finance, the government laid off state workers and offloaded its most saleable assets to the highest bidders, invariably outsiders. Local businessman Norm Mitchell complains that he was never even given a chance to buy the Aitutaki Hotel. Intimidated by the authorities, his business partners are too frightened to appear before the camera. After losing his state job, Matunga turned to carving ukuleles for tourists. But when this failed to bring in enough money he decided to emigrate to Australia. But not all islanders feel the same: after 25 years in a government office, Nani feels liberated by her new job as tourist guide. But the rest of the population struggles to survive without the state wage which was once taken for granted. Produced by ABC Australia Distributed by Journeyman Pictures

Black Rock Beach - The spectacular black volcanic rocks are surrounded by amazingly white sand, making this a perfect spot for a day at the beach. This place is traditionally believed to be the place where the souls of the dead people commenced their trip to the afterworld. You can stay at this villa: goo.gl/0EuBwi 6. Arorangi Cook Island Christian Church (CICC) - The cultural experience of the Cook Islands won't be complete without attending a church service with gorgeous songs. Stay close at: goo.gl/qlWLRT 7.

The modern circle commemorates the 6 Polynesian canoes that arrived during the 6th Festival of Arts. 8. Arai te Tonga (marae) - The Island's most important marae, or sacred place. It was used for gatherings and prayers. 9. Highland Paradise (guilty rocks) - Cook Island cultural center, where you can learn about the Cook Island Maori culture and history.

A short 30-minute hike to the top affords spectacular views over the lagoon and lush, palm-studded landscape. A sign on the road opposite Paradise Cove marks the trailhead, and the track is marked on the free maps available on the island. 9. Aroa Marine Reserve Sheltered by the outlying reef on Rarotonga's west coast, the crystal clear waters of the Aroa Marine Reserve are excellent for snorkeling. Parrot fish, Moorish idols, wrasse, and angelfish are just some of the species snorkelers might spot here, and the lagoon is off-limits to motorized boats making it especially safe for swimming and snorkeling with small children. Kayaking is also a popular pursuit. 8. Cook Islands Cultural Village Encompassing five acres of lush tropical gardens, the Cook Islands Cultural Village gives visitors a feel for traditional island life. Coconut husking, cooking, fishing, dancing, carving, weaving, and Maori bush medicine are just some of the activities visitors can learn about on the Cultural Village Tour. The packages include a meal and dance show. 7. Avarua Situated on the north coast of Rarotonga, Avarua is the capital of the Cook Islands. This relaxed little town has a friendly feel, and visitors will find shops, restaurants, and several tourist attractions here. On Sunday mornings, the sweet strains of Maori hymns waft from the CICC (Cook Islands Christian Church). Dating from 1853, the church is made of coral, and some of the island's most famous people are buried in its graveyard, including the first prime minister of the Cook Islands. The Cook Islands Library and Museum Society houses a collection of rare books on the Pacific, and the museum offers a glimpse of the cultural history of the islands. 6. Arorangi Arorangi is a small village on the west side of the island. It was the first missionary village on Rarotonga. Today sightseers can visit the Cook Island Christian Churchdating from 1849 and view a monument to the island's first missionary, Papeiha. Arorangi Beach is a beautiful spot to bask on the sand by day and watch the sun sink into the sea at dusk. 5. Cross Island Walk (The Needle) The cross-island walk is a great way to explore Rarotonga's lush scenery. The trail leads from the north coast up to the pinnacle rock Te Rua Manga and then via Wigmore's Falls to the south coast. The falls are beautiful after heavy rain with a pool at their base, but the cascades slow to a trickle during the dry season. 4. Titikaveka Beach On the southwest coast of Rarotonga, pretty Titikaveka Beach and lagoon is one of the island's best areas to swim and snorkel. The water is often so clear that swimmers need only stand in the lagoon to spot colorful fish. Snorkelers will find a plethora of marine life around the many coral heads, and the lagoon is dotted with blue sea stars. 3. Muri Beach On the southeast coast of Rarotonga, Muri Beach or Muri Lagoon, as it is sometimes called, is one of the most popular and picturesque beaches on the island. Crystal clear shallows stretch into dreamy shades of aquamarine, and snorkelers can see coral and many species of tropical fish. Four offshore islets, called motu, shimmer on the horizon, enhancing the beauty of the area. 2. Tapuaetai (One Foot Island) Fringed by gently curving coconut palms, beautiful Tapuaetai, or One Foot Island as it is more commonly known, is the most visited of Aitutaki's motu, and for good reason. This stunning island is worthy of most people's wildest tropical fantasies. Beach-lovers can bask on its beautiful white sands, wade and snorkel in the turquoise lagoon, and even get their passport stamped at the tiny post office. 1. Aitutaki Lagoon Aitutaki's main attraction is the large picture-perfect lagoon with translucent turquoise water. Twenty-one small islands (motu) dot the outer edge of the lagoon, some of which can be visited on cruises or tours. Kayaking is also a great way to explore these tiny islets. The small island of Maina in the southwest corner of the lagoon offers excellent snorkeling opportunities and is home to a beautiful sandbar known as "Honeymoon Island".

On my down time I was on the lagoon constantly stunned by the pure beauty of this island. I want to mention that in my video I have numerous photos/videos with my favorite student Geoffrina, I have never felt so connected with a student she was sweet, caring and I saw a lot of myself in her. I hope to visit soon, and I cannot wait to see my kiddies all grown up. I hope you enjoy this video, and urge you to visit this gem Aitutaki, Cook islands. Thank you again!!

Try to imagine a life on your very own private island. Cook Island is the perfect opportunity to make that dream a reality. While the main islands comprising the Florida Keys are connected by a series of bridges, Cook Island is one of the exclusive and private "off-the-grid" islands to be found offshore. Accessible only by boat, Cook Island, just off the tip of Big Pine Key, is a 67-acre, sensitively developed island, a rustic throwback to the original Keys lifestyle. The island is located 35 minutes away from Key West, and roughly three hours from Miami making it the perfect weekend getaway. The property has been meticulously restored and modernized into a luxurious, casually elegant, family compound. Upon docking your boat and walking down your private observation pier, you’re greeted by the two-story guest house featuring one bedroom, one bathroom, and a spacious Great Room overlooking the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The Great Room is the heart of the entire compound and features a chef’s kitchen, family room, and dining room. Additional features include vaulted pine ceilings, wide-plank pine flooring, large marble center island, stainless steel appliances, and a farmhouse sink. Upon leaving the Great room, retire to the Beach House where you’ll find the master bedroom and bathroom along with a separate room that could serve as your office, sitting room, or a third bedroom. Features include an old-fashioned, claw foot tub in the bathroom, as well as hardwood throughout the space. Spacious floor plans throughout the structures make it easy to accommodate additional guests. A small service building containing all the necessary equipment and utilities is tucked away on this self-sustaining property. With its white sandy beaches, pristine turquoise waters and privacy, Cook island is the perfect example of an offshore island retreat, a charming reminder of a time when life was slower in pace. Kayaking, paddle boarding, world-class fishing, snorkeling and boating are among the outdoor activities to be experienced in the waters surrounding your private compound. Take a short boat ride to Little Palm Island with its gourmet cuisine and luxurious spa. Cook Island truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain a rare and iconic property offering you and your family instant connection to place and to history.

This scooter ride starts at Ranganui's Retreat, taking the (only) road past the airport/runways, down the 'main/front' road on the east side of the island (features most of the popular shops, interspersed by residential houses), and into the main square (post office, internet, police station) opposite the main docks. The ride then heads up past the hospital, and down some back roads to the back (west) side of the island.
