Moorea Travel Guide: 322 reviews and 666 photos

Moorea is one of the most visited islands of French Polynesia.

The island has spectacular bays, impressive basaltic mountain ridges and peaks, white sand beaches and pristine lagoons. A perfect place for honeymooners with a lot of water activities, island touring and good hotels.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Close to Tahiti, cheaper than Bora Bora
  • Cons:Too much traffic on the main road
  • In a nutshell:A good taste of French Polynesia when you can't afford the other islands

    The scenery and greenery is fabulous here. I thank you for the trip to a place I will not likely be able to visit. My last trip to Utah & Arizona parks in the US was a great adventure and hiking. Take a look and I think you would enjoy

    Hey Helga, your beautiful photos make me impatient to get to Moorea. Was your 4x4 tour a half or full day tour? Best wishes, Sissi
