Maupiti is the most northern of the Society Islands. In a referendum, the inhabitants voted not to accept the implantation of luxury hotel chains on their island and Maupiti has thus retained its authentic character. The main source of revenue for the islanders, apart from tourism, is the cultivation of watermelons and the fabrication of traditional penu (pestles) from volcanic rock, which are prized items in kitchens throughout The Islands of Tahiti. Dominated by Mount Teurafaatiu, (380 meters), the island’s 11 km2 are home to many archeological remains. Maupiti, a way of life that will charm you in a setting that will take your breath away.
