Wild Maupiti

Wild Maupiti

Like a miniature Bora Bora, this more remote island has remained authentic. Controlled tourism promises a quiet stay for globetrotters who want to get off the beaten track.

Travellers on the tranquil shores of Maupiti stroll and daydream. This is the island for bike tours and canoe rides. With a guide, climb to the top of Mount Teurafaatiu – over 370 metres – and embrace the panorama of dazzling splendour.

Another site you need to absolutely explore is the Vaitia Valley, where an imposing flat rock is the supposed remnant of the canoe of Hiro, the great hero and demigod who divided Huahine, another Sous-le-Vent island in the Society Islands.

The sumptuous Maupiti lagoon offers beautiful deep-sea diving.
