    Main island seen from motu Tiapaa

    Fondest memory: Most people coming to French Polynesia visit the island of Bora Bora as it is known as the most beautiful island of French Polynesia.

    However, if you want to find out what Bora Bora was like 40 years ago, then go to Maupiti. Maupiti offers similar scenery, peace and tranquility but without mass tourism.

    Tranquility

    Main island

    Favorite thing: The atmosphere is so different from the other islands. As there are no deluxe hotels, no bars and discotheques, only a few nautical and land activities and excursions, you can still feel the tranquility of the island and the real friendliness of the Tahitian people.

    A fare on the motu

    Fondest memory: There are no hotels, only a few guest houses or pensions in the village or on the motus. They offer traditional and most typical hospitality.

    Fondest memory: In Maupiti you can still experience the authentic Polynesian way of life and people are still very friendly because they are not burned out by seeing too many tourists.

    Motu Tiapaa
