Mt. Teurafaatiu, Maupiti Island

#3 of 6 in Things to do in Maupiti Island
Take the challenging hike up Mt. Teurafaatiu for extensive, uninterrupted views of Maupiti and the surrounding islands of French Polynesia. With an elevation of 372 m (1,220 ft), the peak is the highest on the island, and provides visitors with clear sights of the lagoon and the reef as they enjoy a well-earned rest. You will reach the first viewpoint after around ten minutes, giving you the chance to head back down or carry on up to the top depending on your hiking experience and weather conditions. The track gets steep in places, and visitors must be prepared for rock scrambling and rope sections. You won't need a guide for this well-posted trail, but do note that you should not attempt the hike in wet conditions as the ground is slippery and dangerous. Plan to visit Mt.

  • First of all it takes a minimum of physical condition to get started: about 3hoo in total for the climb - descent, strong heats, trek not always shaded with on the last third a dozen passages with ropes. By taking your time, there is no danger in reality, and it spice up the hike to make it even more fun and memorable! The view of the lagoon colours is just fantastic! that can't be overlooked!
