Tupai

In the shape of a heart, Tupai  is the epitome of a lover’s island! This tiny isle close to Bora Bora is only accessible by boat or helicopter and there is no accommodation once you get there. However, there is a magnificent white sandy beach where honeymooners can share a few romantic hours. Ideal for taking a photo of the bride in (or out of!) her wedding dress.

Maiao

Maiao, is Tabu island, the forbidden island. Not far from Moorea, only certain charter boats are authorized to go there. A long time ago, a case of land appropriation aroused the anger of the island’s inhabitants and anyone wishing to visit today must be able to prove their good intentions. For those lucky enough to be allowed to visit, there is crab fishing, hiking and an ATV safari tour.
