#1 of 6 in Things to do in Maupiti Island
Relax on the golden shores or explore the waters for exotic species at Tereia Beach. The fine-grain sand, shade of the coconut trees, and shallowness of the blue lagoon draw snorkelers, swimmers, and sunbathers alike. The abundant marine life is easily visible in the clear, shallow water, providing great opportunities to spot blacktip sharks, octopuses, and rays. Even those who shy away from swimming in chilly seas should dip their toes into the warm waters here.

  • This beach is great for family with children. And I cross walking the Motu Auira with water from the beach, but not beyond the waist on a 450 m walk. approximately. With a little bit of luck, they can interbreed with harmless sharks lemon of no more than 40 or 50 cms in size extremely elusive and fearful; and you can also see some timate stripes "Stingray" very curious but quite reluctant to contact... Experience beautiful on a beautiful beach... Keep in mind that there is a Snack where you can eat very good price (Chez Mimi) and pension (Espace) offering restaurant service.

  • The beach is nice but the water is very shallow. You can walk across the lagoon. The water is therefore very warm and not refreshing  more »
  • Great beach, which is also used by locals. Snorkel through the water to the motu with shark babies, hover to see stingrays, explore the motu, beckoning visitors, back to the snack, consider playing with the locals, sunset - simply beautiful. Swimming - right by the way, the water is deeper.
