Description:   The Cook Islands comprises of two main groups. The best beaches are found on Aitutaki. Because of their idyllic surroundings and good infrastructure the Cook Islands have been used as the setting for several films, the best known being Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence staring David Bowie. The best resorts are on Rarotonga and Aitutaki. The best swimming beaches are at Muri Lagoon and Titikaveka. Whilst on the island it is possible to tour the islands by plane, boat, car and horse drawn carriage. Good places to visit are the Takamoa Mission House, built in 1842, and the old Palace of Makea at Taputapuatea. The lagoon is equally impressive.
