New Maupiti Tours
Born Bora's discrete little sister, Maupiti, is one of the most beautiful French Polynesian isles. There is a gleaming lake with every colour from red to blue, a perfectly ring of isles with sandbanks, palms that lean over the bank and large flowerbeds. Though this little charming man is no longer a mystery, he still serves as a refuge to take in the sloth.
There is only one street and practically no car, just bicycles; there are no flashy resort, just a few family-run guesthouses where guests can taste tasty regional dishes and really enjoy interacting with their homes. If you want to gamble, there's just the right amount of activity to keep you alive, from hiking and lake trips to scuba and canoeing.
