Discover the mountainous island of Raiatea, one of French Polynesia’s most exquisite destinations, considered sacred by the local people. With some of the world’s most lush, unspoiled nature, ribbon-like waterfalls, and pristine lagoons, it’s easy to understand Raiatea enchants those who visit.
On a South Pacific cruise that calls at Raiatea, you’ll discover idyllic, white-sand beaches fringing the islet of Motu Iriru, or have a chance to join a snorkel or dive adventure at Te Mara Nui. Explore ancient ruins at Marae Taputapuatea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Shop for traditional clothing, handmade sculptures, or fresh fruit at the Mercato Coperto di Uturoa. Visit the Faaroa Botanical Garden where you can hike between banyan trees and admire indigenous island plant species like pandanus, mape, and rhododendrons. Uncover a tropical paradise on a luxury cruise to Raiatea with Celebrity.
