Welcome to Tubuai. Does the name sound familiar? Perhaps that’s because Tubuai was where Christian Fletcher and his fellow mutineers from the Bounty tried to settle, without success, in 1789. The reconstructed Fort George will help you visualize the events of that incredible story. Today, Tubuai is a very calm and discrete island, despite being a veritable jewel of the Austral Islands. There are many hiking trails on the island, including Mount Taitaa, which culminates at 422 meters. The immense lagoon is teeming with fish and is a paradise for divers and kite surfers. And to get even further away from it all, there are eight motu on the lagoon, each with a perfect white sandy beach waiting for a Robinson Crusoe.
The island of abundance
