Looking for excitement during your stay in Raiatea?
There’s an almost endless choice of actvities for you to try while you’re in Raiatea. For instance, you can paddle up the only navigable river in French Polynesia in a kayak or on a paddleboard; or take a trip back in time by visiting the sacred sites of “Havai’i” dotted around the island, including the most sacred of all, the marae of Taputapuatea. If you like diving, there’s a shipwreck for you to explore; the Nordby, which sank in the year 1900. And of course, there’s the magnificent turquoise lagoon with its coral reef, multitudes of tropical fish, manta rays and sea turtles. Whether you’re on a boat excursion to the motu, cruising the lagoon on a catamaran, or hiking to the top of Mount Temehani with a local guide, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of Raiatea and surprised by just how much the island has to offer.
