Aitutaki Beach, Cook Islands in the South Pacific
The Cook Islands are located in the South Pacific Ocean, northeast of New Zealand, between French Polynesia and American Samoa.
There are 15 major islands spread over 2.2 million km2 of ocean, divided into two distinct groups: the Southern Cook Islands and the Northern Cook Islands of coral atolls. The islands were formed by volcanic activity; the northern group is older and consists of six atolls, which are sunken volcanoes topped by coral growth. The climate is moderate to tropical.
