The Cook Islands may never be considered a shoppers paradise.
You won’t find any large malls here featuring products from Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Prada and the like. However, what you will find is a sprinkling of shops and markets selling intriguing and unique products, made right here in our own Little Paradise with love and care and sourced from our many charming islands.
Unique traditional crafts such as woven rito hats, intricate carvings and lovingly stitched tivaevae, can be found alongside natural coconut oil products, chutneys, sauces and jams, island clothing and stunning works of contemporary art. The ultimate prizes of course are Cook Islands black pearls, sold either individually or in exquisitely beautiful pieces of jewellery.
So whether you are tempted to take home a $50 coconut shell ukulele, or an impressive $25,000 strand of black pearls, we are sure you will find that searching for just the right item is a joy.
