What to do in Maupiti
Like its neighbor Bora Bora, Maupiti is made up of a mountainous main island surrounded by several large motu (islets) encircling a beautiful blue lagoon.
To explore Maupiti, there are a number of activities available. Rent a bike, for example, and cycle the 11 km around the island. Or, for the more athletically inclined, organize a day's mountain hike to the island's finest 360° viewpoint, overlooking the incredible sparkling lagoon!
The lagoon also has a lot to offer. You'll find beautiful beaches, especially on the motu, from which you can explore the underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving. Manta rays are plentiful on Maupiti! You can also walk across the lagoon on the large sandbar between Plage Tereia and motu Auira.
Maupiti is sure to make you fall in love with Tahiti Et Ses Îles, its landscapes, its people and its culture. The island boasts many marae (ancient places of worship), archaeological sites and petroglyphs. You'll be able to immerse yourself in Polynesian history and better understand the local customs and legends.
