Outdoor Activity
Hike to the top of Mount Tapioi for expansive views of the topography of Raiatea and surrounding islands. An easy trek takes you up to the summit, offering panoramic vistas and photo ops. Trace the line of the coral reef through the clear sea and across to Bora Bora, and take in the lush, green vegetation that covers the mountain and reaches far out across the island. Keep an eye out for parrots, ponies, goshawks, and giant snails--all residents on the mountain.
