Maupiti is every traveler’s dream of a picture-postcard tropical island come true. It is a ravishing coral island, fringed by little volcanic islets bound together by sand bars, coral reefs, and swaying palms. Encounter a spectacular lagoon, painted in every shade of aqua imaginable – from azure to emerald, with lapis lazuli and deep turquoise in between. Over the years, Maupiti has managed to retain its laidback island ambiance. It is a single road, no cars settlement, where you can bike and hike around to your heart’s content, occasionally plunging into the lagoons to cool off. A hike up to Te’urafa’atiu and Mt. Teurafaatiu Summit is well worth the magnificent sunset views of the lagoon and Bora Bora in the distance. This is also the perfect place for kayaking trips, scuba diving, and snorkeling to discover the incredibly precious marine life on this part of the planet. Lagoon excursions and walking tours are other popular leisure activities on the island. Get to know the local islanders better and feast on the delicious local cuisine prepared with seasonal produce. The freshly caught seafood is definitely not to be missed.
