Mai'ao island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Mai'ao is a small island located near the major island of Moorea in French Polynesia. There are no beaches to speak of, since the bottom is shallow and rocky. So this is rather a place for hiking. There is a relatively large lagoon in the south of the atoll. In addition, inside the island, there are two lakes with salt water and some kind of beaches. This is quite like the Dead Sea in Israel. But of course, it's not quite the same. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #11 of the "Best islands in French Polynesia"
