Motu Tuanai island

Ultimate guide (June 2024)
Motu Tuanai is the minor island of Maupiti atoll, where Maupiti Airport is located. Surprise, but the best beach can be found right near the airport (near the pier). It has good entry into the water with a decent depth. The rest of the coastline is very shallow. However, if you walk long enough, it is possible to reach deep water area of the lagoon. As for the landscapes, these are amazing - with palms and sandbanks. And there are usually no people around, since the islet is not popular among tourists. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This beach ranks #11 of the "Best beaches in French Polynesia"

Hotels [edit]

Most of tourists head to other islands of the atoll - right after arrival to Maupiti. However, there are also several accommodations on Motu Tuanai from US$100 per night: Pension Terama Maupiti, Maupiti holidays and Poe iti. These are not presented in the online booking systems. So it is better to google for their direct contacts.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to the airport of Bora Bora (BOB), next fly to Maupiti airport (MAU).

There are also direct flights from Tahiti island and even from Raiatea island. Once you are in Maupiti, free boat of Air Tahiti will deliver you to the main island of the atoll. Please also note, that many hotels provide for their guests free transfer from the airport.
