Mount Tapioi, Uturoa

4.7
#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Raiatea
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. A visit to Mount Tapioi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Raiatea itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

    Short hike (AR: 2 h) on a practicable way with some shady passages. A climb without great difficulty that is suitable for children: they will appreciate animals on the trip (pigs, roosters, horses). You will be rewarded for your efforts with a panoramic view of the lagoon on the island of Tahaa and Raiatea. Attention! The path is private: access is closed on weekends.

    Walk to preferably early in the morning to avoid the heat. Very nice walk, not too complicated. The view from the top merit the effort provides. Beautiful view of the lagoon and Tahaa.
