This tiny island in Aitutaki's beautiful lagoon contains a post office and a single cabin that can be rented by visitors. Most visitors just come for the day to experience the tranquil location and to snorkel in the lagoon.

Visited here on a tour. Enjoyed a magnificent fish BBQ with the tastiest fresh salads. There is also the opportunity to have your passport stamped. SO dont forget your passport. You can walk to Heaven or just enjoy the sun sand and water right there....More

One foot island is an absolute to visit when you go to Aitutaki, if you don’t it’s like traveling to Norway and not seeing the northern lights😂 It’s just absolutely spectacular, everything is as it is in all the photos you see, no photoshop needed!!!...More

This tropical island is paradise. Part of its beauty is that it's uninhabited and not over-touristed. It's my new favourite place in the world. Something I didn't get to do was swim from One Foot Island to another island called Tekopua. Next time.
