Opoa Vacation Packages
Opoa is a tiny commune on a headland jutting out from the southeast coast of Raiatea. Check out the magnificent coastline and gaze out at the pristine lagoon or pamper your senses at a luxury resort. Learn about ancient Polynesian culture at the archaeological complex on the tip of the peninsula and look out toward the neighboring islands.
The soft sands of Opoa Beach are perfect for settling down for a relaxing day by the lagoon. Situated on the northern edge of the peninsula, the beach has a wide sandy area dotted with palm trees. Spread out your towel and soak up the sunshine or recline in the shade. Go for a swim or snorkel and check out the marine life in the clear tropical waters.
Rent a kayak or a Polynesian-style canoe and paddle around the coastline. Check out views of Tahaa to the north and Huahine to the east. Go for a stroll around the headland to see one of the region’s most important archaeological relics, the Marae Taputapuatea. This ancient place of worship has preserved rock walls, platforms and sculptures.
Pick from one of the resorts located by the lagoon to extend your stay in Opoa. Decorated with beautiful gardens and tropical décor, these waterfront bungalows are ideal for chilling out after a day of exploring. Take a dip in the pool or sit back on a sun lounge. French-influenced Tahitian cuisine and tropical delights are on the menu at the resort restaurants. Order a cocktail and relax at the bar. Your accommodations might include a shuttle service to the nearby fishing village and the markets, as well as exciting boat tours to snorkeling destinations.
Opoa is located on Raiatea in the Leeward Islands. Raiatea is easy to reach by ferry from Bora Bora, Huahine and Papeete in Tahiti. There is an airport on the northern side of the island with connections to Tahiti and Bora Bora. You can also reach the island by yacht and experience an enchanting journey through the South Pacific Ocean. Rent a car in the village of Uturoa and reach Opoa in 35 minutes.
