Honeymoon Island

By Linda Tancs

Halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii in the South Pacific, the Cook Islands are a quieter alternative to their more bustling neighbors.  Replete with the requisite white sand beaches, clear lagoons, lush rainforests and volcanic mountains, the main draws are Rarotonga (the largest of the Cooks) and Aitutaki, a short plane ride away.  Called the Honeymoon Island, Aitutaki is a destination wedding dream waiting to happen, thanks to its sparkling lagoon, sandbars, coral ridges and motu.  It’s also rumored to have the best dance recital performance in the island chain.  Kia Orana!
