Last weekend we were invited by some friends living in Papeete, to spend
a few days with them on a beautiful Polynesian Atoll called Maupiti.
Maupiti is located just east or Bora-Bora and we reached it by air
in 1 hour and 18 minutes

Our flight took us from Papeete to via Huahine, then Bora-Bora, to our
destination Maupiti.

The map of Maupiti Atoll and our kind guests

This Place is a real pearl, with its main island, the coral Reef (MOTU)
and the impressive colorful lagoon.
Saturday and Sunday we were the guests of a local family which housed
and spoiled us in any way they could.
