Mangaia

Mangaia

Mangaia is a short 50 minute flight east, south east of Rarotonga, the island is over 22 million years old and has been created out of a number of seabed volcanic eruptions which have resulted in the original island being push further up above the sea level. So you may find yourself walking over a pre-historic coral reef (called Makatea) which is half a mile inland from the coast! The island is very quiet and the villager's live the same lifestyle that their ancestors have for many thousands of years. During your stay, visit the caves where one of the tribes lived for many years while they were at war with a neighbouring village tribe, and a walk in the forest to see the Woodpecker which is unique to Mangaia.

 

Accommodation on the island is small and personal, mainly family run bungalows and bed & breakfast type properties.
