Mt. Teurafaatiu, Maupiti Island

Categories: Outdoor Activities
Inspirock Rating:
5/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web
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.

  • If there is one thing to do in Maupiti is take good shoes to tackle the d1h (or 30 minutes for the fastest) climb of the mountain to enjoy views truly breathtaking! The last meters are a rope if you suffer from Vertigo refrain.
