Mauke called the garden of the islands, is home to approximately 300 people, roughly half the size of Rarotonga in circumference, but a world away in landscape and lifestyle.

Forty kilometres from their closest neighbouring island, Mitiaro, and 70 kilometres from Atiu, Mauke’s central volcanic plateau is surrounded by a ring of jagged, razor-sharp fossilised coral or ‘makatea’ reaching up to 1,000 meters inland.
