Aitutaki is an island location which is shaped, more or less, like a triangle. The villages within Aitutaki are those neighborhoods which are at each of the three corners of this triangle, those spaces lying between those corner neighborhoods along the coast and the major township located near the center of Aitutaki.
The village at the north of Aitutaki is less a neighborhood and more a region of nature. It holds the tallest point of the island, which is Maunga Pu mountain. Similarly, the village at the south of the island is a natural region, but it is the one making up the lowest point of the island. In fact, it is almost underwater.
Along the eastern side of Aitutaki, travellers can find the islands of Akaiami, Mangere, and Tekopua. Opposite this, on the western side of the island, travellers will find the vilage that holds the majority of Aitutaki’s attractions. This neighborhood is called Arutanga village. Visiting ships arrive in this area, with the longest beach area, Amuri, being located northward of this western district.A map of Aitutaki which can help travellers orient themselves to the area is available online at the Cook Islands website ( http://www.the-cook-islands.com/aitut... ).
