With a vast, sparkling lagoon rivaling Bora Bora’s – but with a fraction of the visitors – Aitutaki just might be the world’s most beautifully-remote island. Just a 45-minute flight from the main island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, Aitutaki and its surrounding 22 atolls served as the tropical backdrop for “Survivor: Cook Islands.” Encircled by a knee-high lagoon, One Foot Island Aitutaki (or Tapuaetai, “one footprint”) is both dreamily-exotic and nearly deserted. But while it may look totally deserted, this tiny island paradise is home to one top attraction – a small hut containing the One Foot Island Post Office, one of the world’s most remote. Luckily, while in Rarotonga I’d heard about the post office from a fellow traveler so I knew to bring my passport on my day trip to Aitutaki. Otherwise, I might have missed out on the chance to get the footprint-shaped passport stamp that is my favorite stamp and a perfect memento of this tropical paradise.
