Tiaraunu is the largest of the motus with plenty of coconut palms. Tauini, Tauroa and Hiraanae are a cluster of motus separated only by breaks in the coral reef. Oroatera is an island paradise with spectacular beaches and a lagoon along with a pond which spawned an ancient legend. Tahuna Iti & Tahuna Rahi: A sanctuary for birds. Reiono: The only motu that has preserved its primitive, original rain forest. Also serves as the home for Kaveu (coconut crabs). Aie: The smallest on the 12 motus. Rimatuu: The first of these motus to be inhabited by Europeans – was once a coconut plantation islet with own village and dock.
