Maraa Grotto, Tahiti

Feel the cool air of Maraa Grotto, a small cave hidden in the thick forests. Take a dip in the small pond that lies at the cave's entrance, or pack a picnic to enjoy in the lush vegetation that surrounds its entrance. While easily accessible from the road, the cave has a secluded and evocative atmosphere, encouraging visitors to imagine the geological and ecological history of the island. Story has it that Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin enjoyed the waters here, so those interested in his work will be particularly appreciative of the natural features and atmosphere that inspired his later pieces.

  • Amazing. The grotto is in a natural lava cave. There are ferns that hang down from the top. Very nice.  more »
  • The gardens are worth a walk around on nicely laid out paths. The grotto is ok but not really much to see.  more »
