The news that Shipwrecked was returning to television gave us a serious dose of nostalgia, but now the series has kicked off it’s also giving us major travel envy!
The reboot sees a host of glamorous castaways competing on two paradise islands for a chance to win a share of a £50,000 cash prize.
Of course the crew needed to find somewhere seriously dreamy for the backdrop; think pristine white sands, crystal clear waters, lush greenery… basically, total bliss.
Previous series had seen them heading to the likes of Tonga and Fiji, but this series they headed to the Cook Islands – and found some very glamorous locations.
Get all the details below including whether you can go and visit…
Where is Shipwrecked 2019 filmed?
The two islands aren’t some fake set created in a studio – they’re very real locations and they’re stunning.
Filming took place across the islands of Motu Rapota and Motu Rakau, which are located in the lagoon of Aitutaki in the Cook Islands.
They sit north of Rarotonga in the South Pacific.
Can you visit the Shipwrecked locations?
In short, yes – but it won’t be a cheap trip.
The Cook Islands are a pretty dreamy destination but they come with a hefty price tag. Still, if you are interested, companies such as Kuoni, TrailFinders and Expedia can be good sources for finding package holidays.
As for visiting Motu Rapota and Motu Rakau, you can find dedicated lagoon cruises for a day trip of a lifetime.
A little out of your budget? Why not check out these private islands you can hire with prices start from £240pp!
Shipwrecked is on E4 on Mondays at 9pm.
