A Private Island Paradise – Motu Mahana

Imagine an all sand island surrounded by crystal clear warm water and covered in gently swaying palm trees. How are you going to spend your day? Basking in the warm sun? Snorkeling with the colourful coral and tropical fish? Reading a book as you relax in a hammock? Or perhaps enjoying the fresh BBQ fish, tropical fruits and 5 star service from the Paul Gauguin staff? Whatever you decide to do – don’t let the bar tender out in the lagoon get lonely – get in the water and enjoy a cocktail from the floating bar!!

This is a unique port of call – a cruise stop unlike others and only available through Paul Gauguin Cruises. Welcome to Motu Mahana – their private island in the Taha’a lagoon. I have been here several times and most recently with a group of family and friends as 14 of us cruised with Paul Gauguin and everyone agreed – it is an amazing day!

When you book your Tahiti cruise with me, I like to help you plan your ports of call throughout the sailing so you get the best experience – and this stop is the easiest to plan. “Plan Nothing! Do Nothing! Just enjoy Motu Mahana!”

It is always a favourite stop for clients. Your day in Taha’a the cruise line staff all come ashore bringing with them everything you need for a great day on their private island. They do a fantastic beach BBQ lunch, they bring the kayaks, you can snorkel, a small market is set up with locals if you would like to do some shopping, maybe a massage on the beach and of course listen to Les Gauguines and Gaugins play their ukuleles and sing Tahitian songs. It is a perfect way to forget any stresses from home and fall into the relaxed Polynesian life style.

When looking at cruises for Tahiti and her islands – it is important to have a Polynesian experience and Paul Gauguin are truly the masters at letting you experience the destination by cruise. Motu Mahana is just one of many, many ways they bring the Tahitian experience into your cruise vacation.
