Kamaka is an island in the Gambier Islands of French Polynesia, 11.7 km south of Mangareva within the same lagoon. Kamaka is about 1 km in length, 700 m wide and has an area of 0.5 km2. The highest point is 166 m.

1.8 km to the NNW rises barren and rugged Makaroa island and off Kamaka's northeastern shore lies the small Manui islet.[1]

Like Taravai, Kamaka has only a residual permanent population, which in Kamaka's case is a family of 4.[2][3][4]
