Aitutaki Services

Traveler's checks can be cashed at the Westpac Bank and the ANZ Bank agencies in Arutanga but they open irregularly. It's smarter to change your money on Rarotonga beforehand as the rates here are poor.

The post office (weekdays only), in the Administration Center, sells local telephone cards which can be used for international calls at the public telephone outside (dial 00 for international access). The Aitutaki postage stamps sold here can be used only to post letters on Aitutaki itself (not accepted on Rarotonga).

M&S Video, just north of Tom's Beach Cottage, offers Internet access.

Public toilets are behind the Blue Nun Cafe at the Orongo Center.

Outpatients are accepted at the hospital Monday-Friday 0830-1200/1300-1600, Saturday 0830-1200, emergencies anytime.


Several handicraft stalls with bright pareus and beachware are in the Orongo Center (closed Sunday), in the former banana packing house near Arutanga wharf.
