Green, mountainous, and sacred to the ancient Polynesians, Raiatea is the second largest of the Society Islands. Home to the mystical Mt. Temehani, which provides the natural environment for a rare flower not found anywhere else in the world, the island of about 12,000 people boasts serene beaches, bright coral reefs, and dramatic mountains. Most people on a Raiatea holiday split their time between tours of the sacred mountain, explorations of the many traditional villages, and water sports and boating experiences. In the build up to your vacation in Raiatea, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our French Polynesia online trip itinerary planner.

Accommodations in Raiatea hug the coast, as the island's mountainous interior remains difficult to access. The main village, Uturoa, serves as the most popular place to stay, with a handful of mid-range guesthouses and budget camping grounds offering easy access to the beach and the island's airport. Regardless of where you stay, you'll be able to reach most major attractions by driving around the coastal road, which circumnavigates the island.
