Penrhyn

The northernmost island in the Cooks group, Penrhyn is about 4 hours flight from Rarotonga, with a weekly air service operating. Penrhyn's massive lagoon, one of the largest in the South Pacific at 233 sq km, was popular with early whalers and traders because of its three entrances, making it an excellent harbour. Today, around 12% of the Cook Islands cultured pearls are farmed within the lagoon.

Along with Black Pearls, popularity for the quality local craftwork made by Penryhn's women has spread throughout the islands, and they are renown for their skills weaving rito (young coconut fronds) into hats, bags, fans and mats. There are several guesthouses and lodges available to visitors but electricity supply is limited to only certain hours of the day.
