Moorea is just one of the many islands in what is known as French Polynesia. Perhaps the most popular (and the most expensive) is Bora Bora. I wish we had the opportunity to go to Bora Bora while we were there, but we were enjoying Moorea so much we decided Bora Bora would have to wait.

Moorea was a great experience, and we spent alot of time in and around the water. We went snorkeling, swimming, swimming with sharks, swimming with rays, swimming at the Motu, and then more swimming in the pool! It's just such a great place to relax and unwind. We met alot of great people who were travelling there as well, and many of our evenings were spent with them doing different things.

I have been to many different tropical islands (I am somewhat of a fanatic for tropical islands) and though Moorea is not at the top of my list, it certainly is still a place you can have a great time. I thnk after having gone to the Seychelles, we are spoiled and nothing will ever beat that. Check out my Seychelles pictures and you'll know why!!!

There's nothing like the overwaterbungalows!

    Black tips are quite friendly off Moorea as are the Sting Rays. The rays are almost like cats...feed them and they will sit in your lap..... great pages.

    Swimming with the sharks? Not without the nets, I hope! Read about the great whites on my Cape town page. All the way from your part of the world! :)

    I had a similar experience in swimming with the sharks in Grand Cayman. I did quite a bit of underwater screaming too, then it was too much I had to jump out of the water! lol You're a very brave traveler! Nice travel pages!! Thanks

    Top photos. Love your tip about the sharks. We only have Great Whites here in Adelaide and the only way to view them is from a really big sturdy boat. Not as bad as the top of Oz, they have Makos that jump in yr boat to get you!

    Hi! Nice page! My fiance has booked 5 nights in Moorea for us for our honeymoon! Do you think a rental car is necessary? Or can alot be gotten to by walking?
