Travel Tips for Raiatea

Touring the island

by Helga67

Raiatea has a partially paved road that encircles the island for about 100 km (62 miles). It follows the contours of the deeply indented coastline and offers magnificent views over the lagoon. You can drive a long time without seeing any houses or people.

traditional motu polynesian feast and dance

by jennie01

this was fun, i wish i took some pics of the meal and cooking preparation and the dance where they picked un suspecting victims to come up and dance-even little tiny children were doing it sooo cute , but my camera battery sadly ran out !

Cradle of Maohi culture

by Helga67

Raiatea is an archaeologist's delight. Scientists have unearthed artefacts linking the island with Hawaii, which corresponds with local tradition that says Raiatea was the great jumping-off point for ancient Polynesian mariners.
Raiatea was the cradle of the Maohi culture.

Captain Cook

by Helga67

Captain James Cook was the first European that discovered Raiatea. He anchored the Endeavour in the lagoon at Opoa in July 1769.

The island in the back is Huahine. On his second trip to Raiatea in 1773, he took a young man from Huahine to England with him. Cook brought him back to Huahine in 1777 and once again visited Raiatea before sailing to Hawaii, where he was killed.

Religion

by Helga67

John Williams was the first London missionary that arrived in Raiatea in 1818. The island remained under the influence of the English Protestant missionaries long after Tahiti had come under French control in 1898. The people of Raiatea are still predominantly Evangelical.
