Maupiti is a small island at the tip of the Society Archipelago, about 300km west of Tahiti.
Maupiti is serviced by air by Air Tahiti, with her airstrip being located on a sandy islet motu, making for a spectacular arrival. There is only one reef pass that allows access to the lagoon and it can be a bit of a hairy entry when the swell is large!
Maupiti is a hidden gem of an island with an exceptionally beautiful lagoon. The island is often referred to as the Preserved Island and it is nature that is the absolute ruler as there are no hotels and only a few scattered family Pensions. The preserved serenity and untouched nature of the island attracts sea turtles who lay their eggs on the white sand beaches. Maupiti’s lagoon is also home to Manta rays and we recommend you experience the unforgettable opportunity of snorkelling with them – simply magic! The island has a striking mountain peak and if you are keen you can hike up to the top to be rewarded with stunning views of the lagoon and even the island of Bora Bora in the distance.
We love the stunning lagoon colours in Maupiti. You feel completely relaxed as you leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life to reconnect with the untouched natural beauty of the island. Although it’s only small you can still keep busy with hikes, bike rides, snorkelling, fishing and of course lazing around in the warm jade waters of the lagoon.
Maupiti will suit those travellers looking to disconnect for a while and be happy to stroll along at a different pace. You will need to be love the simplistic pension accommodations and although you may be far from the amenities of a large hotel, your taste buds will not be missing anything as the local cuisine is fantastic! Maupiti is perfect for those who are searching for an untouched paradise eager to find their own postcard paradise.
