It’s difficult to change money on Mitiaro so bring plenty of cash. Don’t drink the tap water, and watch out for the island’s vicious mosquitoes.

The Administration Centre, located near the wharf, houses the post office, Telecom, police station, island secretary and the mayor.

Everybody knows everyone else on the tiny island, so ask at your accommodation if you’d like to go on a tour with either Julian Aupuni or Papa Neke. To conduct your own exploration of the island, bicycles and scooters can be hired from Ngarouru Tou.
