Raiatea island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Raiatea is an island in French Polynesia located not far from Bora Bora. The main island itself has no good beaches, nor outstanding attractions. Surrounding motus may offer few good beaches. However, transportation issues make visiting these motus to be quite difficult and expensive. Shore and seabed: stones, sand. [edit]
This island ranks #10 of the "Best islands in French Polynesia"

Hotels [edit]

Rooms' fares in the hotels of Raiatea range from US$70 to US$7000 per night. Before booking a room, it is better to ask the hotel by e-mail about island tours they offer and about fares as well. Because, there's no sense to visit the island without these excursions.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to the airport of Bora Bora (BOB), next fly to Raiatea airport (RFP). There are also direct flights from Tahiti island, as well as from some other islands.

When to go [edit]

The best time for a beach holiday in Raiatea island is a dry season from March to October.
