The eventful geological past of the island of Rurutu can clearly be seen in its many abrupt cliffs, pierced with caves. A lot of these caves can be visited, including ‘the Mitterand cave’, named after the French President who visited the island. With its stalactites and stalagmites, the inside of the cave is like a cathedral. It is easy to reach and you’re free to wander around inside. Your guide will tell you all the legends and tales that surround it.
