There are two rules in Raivavae: take things slowly and keep an eye on the weather. The rain is a regular visitor, but you’ll always have enough clear skies for a tour round the island by bike. Along the 22km road you’ll pass numerous vestiges of the past, including the marae Atoni. The more courageous will climb Mount Hiro which dominates the island and the lagoon. And don’t miss a day on the motu in the melodious company of the nesting seabirds.
Off the beaten track
