One of the highlights of a Paul Gauguin cruise is the day at Motu Mahana. A motu is a small island - I mean really small. This one is owned by the Paul Gauguin and they are the only ones who use it. For that day, they pretty much move the entire ship to the island. Deck chairs, full lunch BBQ, little 'shops', crafts and activities and . . . a floating bar. It's a super relaxing day of snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing and eating.
There were some tables from the boat (like the spa selling sunscreen) and some local craftspeople. Shells, pareos and pearls, oh my!
