Anatakitaki (Kopeka Cave)
Atiu's most famous cave is the only home of the rare kopeka bird. A Guided tour is available.
Te Ana O Raka and and Rima Rau burial caves contain bones; the latter also has a deep sinkhole and pool. A guide is required.
Discover the birds of Atiu, especially the Kakerori (oyster catcher) recovery programme, with local conservationist Birdman George.
The island's fine beaches include Oravaru on the west coast, Oneroa on the south-east, and Takauroa, south of Oneroa. Cook's party is said to have landed on Oravaru, while Oneroa is known for its lovely shells. There is also good swimming at Taunganui Harbour.
The lagoon from Takauro to Matai Landing is ideal for snorkelling at low tide. Colourful tropical fish become trapped in the area known as the Coral Garden, forming a natural aquarium.
Early 19th traders and missionaries were the first to introduce coffee to Atiu. Guided tours are available, during which you learn how to process coffee without commercial machines.
Guided tours are available and can be arranged through your accommodation.
The island is known for its fine tivaevae (traditional handsewn quilts).
