Raiatea Travel guide
Raiatea : Michelin's recommendations
Renowned for the royal marae complex of Taputapuatea and overlooked by Mt Temehani, a legendary site where the souls of the deceased linger, Raiatea is aptly named the sacred island. No beach here, but a huge lagoon with motu where you can bask in the sun. Numerous waterfalls and abundant nature.
