Where to stay in Raiatea

Accommodations in Raiatea hug the coast, as the island's mountainous interior remains difficult to access. The main village, Uturoa, serves as the most popular place to stay, with a handful of mid-range guesthouses and budget camping grounds offering easy access to the beach and the island's airport. Regardless of where you stay, you'll be able to reach most major attractions by driving around the coastal road, which circumnavigates the island.
