Outdoor Activity
Take the challenging hike up Mt. Teurafaatiu for extensive, uninterrupted views of Maupiti and the surrounding islands of French Polynesia. With an elevation of 372 m (1,220 ft), the peak is the highest on the island, and provides visitors with clear sights of the lagoon and the reef as they enjoy a well-earned rest. You will reach the first viewpoint after around ten minutes, giving you the chance to head back down or carry on up to the top depending on your hiking experience and weather conditions. The track gets steep in places, and visitors must be prepared for rock scrambling and rope sections. You won't need a guide for this well-posted trail, but do note that you should not attempt the hike in wet conditions as the ground is slippery and dangerous. Mt. Teurafaatiu is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Maupiti Island Edition.

  • My husband pretty much forced me to go on this hike. Prior to the trip, I read about how difficult the hike was and wanted absolutely no part of it. Our boat captain told us that the hike should take ...  more »
  • After about 20 minutes at the top we packed away the drone and headed back down the mountain. Facing downhill we were constantly looking at some of the bluest and clearest water anywhere in the South ...  more »
  • Track bit overgrown and side branchs not marked so a little confusing but view well worth the climb. Track would be slippery in wet weather so best done on fine day.  more »
