Islands for your vacation is one of the best vacation
destination decisions you may ever make. The Aitutaki lagoon is as
idyllic a place as you will ever find; many poets and writers have spun
thousands of lines describing its wonders and beauty. Matriki Beach
Huts was built on the foundation that all people should be able to
enjoy this splendor without the high costs associated with such remote
travel. Aitutaki lagoon offers snorkeling,
beaches, sailing, kayaking,
and much more. While snorkeling, you can view a myriad of colorful
giant clams of Aitutaki and the South Pacific; these clams
are now protected in four separate reserves in the Aitutaki lagoon. Bone
fishing is a thrill all its own – although we don’t eat the
fish they are truly a rush to stalk and catch. Fishing
for pelagic species outside of the Aitutaki lagoon offers up Yellow
Fin Tuna (Ahi), Dorado
(dolphin fish), Wahoo,
and array of jacks and snapper. Bring some of your catch back for the
BBQ. At Matriki we practice fishing conservation – never kill what you
can’t eat in a few days, and never kill billfish.
