The Islands are renowned for their white sand beaches, which remain untouched by heavy tourist development.
Glendale, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
There’s a fistful of good reasons the Cook Islands should see much more tourism than they do. Flying into Rarotonga, an energetic visitor can cycle the entire 32 kilometre circumference of the island within two hours. Better yet, a host of lagoons, beaches, waterfalls and local cafes invite regular stops along the way.
A curious blend of Tahitian, indigenous Maori and contemporary New Zealand culture is spread across these 15 small islands, which are in turn spread over 1,800,000 square kilometers of ocean, creating one of the world’s sparsest destinations. The Islands are renowned for their white sand beaches, which remain untouched by heavy tourist development. Accommodation on the Islands is composed almost entirely of locally owned properties, each offering the kind of small-scale, personalized service unheard of in larger chains absent from the Cooks.
With beaches, reefs and a serene pace of life to compete with any in Fiji or Tahiti, the comparable anonymity of the Cooks has kept prices extremely reasonable, making them an ideal choice for longer stays. In fact, more than one New Zealander has been known to set up shop here permanently.
The Cooks are also famous for their exquisite black pearls. While authentic pearl souvenirs can be purchased from most hotel gift shops, better prices can usually be found at retailers in a nearby town. The savvy visitor can also take them home for free. Goway Travel is offering a free pearl pendant valued at $500 to guests booking stays of 12 days or more at selected hotels.
Snowbirds non-plussed by pearls may wish to consider a stay at Crown Beach Resort and Spa, where Goway guests can enjoy 10 nights accommodation for the price of 5. This deal can be extended to include 20 nights for the price of 10, or 30 nights for the price of 15, saving up to $2800 per person. This limited offer is available for departures on February 23, 2014 and March 2, 2014, or on selected dates from January to March, 2015.
