Cook Islands: Paradise found

Cook Islands: Paradise found
By admin


Scattered over 2.2 million square kilometres of pure blue ocean, 15 fragments of land make up the Cook Islands… aka paradise.

""

This is the country where there are no traffic lights, one roundabout and every tourist gets an official Cook Island driver’s licence.

""

It is believed that they were first settled during the 6th century by Polynesian people who negotiated 1000km of open ocean from Tahiti, since then the islands have fallen under British & New Zealand guardianship, but now the country is very much in command of its own destiny.

""

The nation showcases thousands of years of Polynesian culture. Floral dresses adorn larger than life matriarchs, the strum of a ukulele is heard on a daily basis, and the locals have a spiritual connection with the jaw-droppingly beautiful islands.

""

Above all time has no meaning, hurried expressions are replaced with beaming smiles, stunning beaches & swaying palm trees.

""

Coral Seas offers a seven-night package which includes a stay in over-water bungalows from $2519
