The climate of Mangaia (Cook Islands)
Mangaia is an island which is part of the Cook Islands. The highest point of the island is located at 169 meters above sea level. Oneroa is the largest city and the capital of the island. This city is home to about 1/3 of the total population of the island. The island is divided into 6 districts by several tribes. These districts are divided into 38 sub districts. The most important food source is coconuts. The island is known for its handcrafted necklaces. These necklaces are made from the shells of Pupu snails which have a yellowish transparent color. Mangaia has a tropical rainforest climate with slightly lower temperatures than on the more northerly located Cook Islands.

The temperature of the sea is pleasantly high all year round.
