Mangaia is the oldest of all South Pacific Islands and you can feel the energy it emanates in every corner of this drop in the ocean.
The landscape been shaped by the water for thousands of years is made of ancient caves, used by the local people as burial sites some centuries ago. In those caves, Polynesians warriors used to find shelter between battles. Some of them are so hidden among the makatea – raised coral reef – that is impossible to find them, but with the help of a local guide you can be assured you’ll be one of the few visitors to explore them.
Home of about 500 people, Mangaia is just a short 50 minutes flight from Rarotonga. The island has just few accommodation options offering traditional Cook Islands warm hospitality. Daily activities, such as island and cave tours can be organized prior you arrival or once on the island.
