Raiatea, the second largest of the Society Islands after Tahiti, is located just 45-minutes by air from Papeete. True to its name, this island is indeed a slice of “faraway heaven” and was once the cultural and religious center of the islands. Steeped in history and culture, this island has hidden temples, marae (sacred spaces), petroglyphs, and other archeological treasures all waiting for you to explore. The mountainous interior is lush with volcanic craters, waterfalls, rare flora and fauna, and plenty of hiking trails. The only navigable river in French Polynesia flows through this island inviting you for an exciting canoe ride. The large, protected lagoon around it makes Raiatea an ideal place for sailing, deep-sea fishing, and scuba diving. Toast to a new adventure on a yacht as you discover deep, calm bays and sail to other peaceful islands.
