Hire a car or a scooter and drive around the island. It's a great place to explore. You can drive half the island before lunch, return to the boat for lunch and then drive the other half in the afternoon.

Wonderful wonderful place. Great welcome hula show right outside the ship. Free tasting of local food. We took the $25 boat to a little island called Motu. There we experienced great snorkelling. Highly recommended.

Raiatea is a little town that reminds me of Papeete many years ago. It is worth walking to the beach near the dock and up to the mountain behind the town.

A functioning town supporting the island. Nice not to see the usual cruise tourist shops. But because Captain cancelled all excursions because of the weather, and poor condition of roads, we were stuck just wandering around the shops.

It was raining here but we were just gland to finally be on land after almost 9 days at sea. We missed Fanning and Rarotonga islands.

Lush foliage and flowers, beautiful views, great roads. Bit of a town by the pier (get wine at the Champions grocery). Great place to rent a car and circle 'round the island (about 3.5 hours).

We took a general island tour (which we did at each stop). We found every guide to be quit knowledgle about the island on tour. The sights we saw were so beautiful that words don't really do justice, and so lots of photos were a must.
