Moorea, with its dream-like scenery, French cuisine and tropical climate, almost seems too good to be true. Yet, it’s there, just 19 kilometres (12 miles) west of Tahiti, and waiting to be discovered. Read a book under a palm tree on a picture-perfect beach or visit the island’s breathtaking waterfalls, sacred mountains and charming Polynesian villages.
The triangular-shaped island of Moorea, pronounced Moe-oh-re-ah, is one of the Windward Islands. Moorea is smaller and less visited than Tahiti, which means you can still enjoy this South Pacific paradise without having to pay top prices.
Choosing which of the island’s pristine beaches and coves you want to visit first is your only challenge. Take your pick from black- or white-sand beaches and decide if you want to play in the waves or swim in sheltered bays. The main beaches are Cook’s Cove and Opunohu Bay. Go scuba diving, snorkelling or surfing around the island’s outer reefs. The sea life is abundant here, and you can see many colourful fish and marine mammals.
If you would rather stay dry, hike the island’s network of paths through the mountainous interior. Follow the Belvedere View track to the top and enjoy views of the shoreline as well as Mount Rotui and Mount Tohiea. Be sure to taste the local produce; drink cocktails with pineapple juice or coconut water in one of the beachside bars and try Tahitian seafood dishes.
Get to Moorea on a cruise ship or yacht, by high-speed ferry or by plane from Pape’ete in Tahiti. Rent a scooter or car or take a LeTruck bus or minibus to explore the island. Tours include four-wheel drive expeditions and horse riding. Accommodation options range from campsites to upscale resorts.
It’s possible to visit Moorea just for one day, but it’s recommended to stay a few days to allow your body and mind to fully adapt to the slow pace on the island.

Stunning and beautiful location. We were able to check-in to our bungalow before 2:00 pm.
Strong preference for this property over the Hilton Moorea, and the Intercontinental Tahiti, which we also spent time at. The overwater bungalows are truly beautiful, and worth a splurge for at least a night. Diverse food offerings to appeal to many tastes. Service can be a bit slow for my American ...
We had a beach front room that was absolutely beautiful. The bathroom was really nice and modern. with the outdoor area which could be accessed from the shower. The king bed was super wide. The furniture behind the head of the bed was a nice transition to the bathroom. Loved the mahogany and teak ...
The location was perfect. Quiet beach away from city but close to local stingray/shark feeding area and most activities. Bungalow was stocked with all the kitchen amenities needed to make about any meal.
This property is under rated and is terrific value for the money. We enjoyed a beautiful oceanfront bungalow. The view was incredible...extremely quiet & peaceful. Wonderful snorkeling right outside our front door. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful...special thanks to Moana, Tim & Vanina ...
Moorea beach lodge is a very well situated hotel. The rooms are not too big, but very well decorated. Has a functional AC, a couch and a safe to put your belongings. There is a shared kitchen for all the guests. Finding the hotel might be a little challenging as you will need a code to get in, even ...
We really enjoyed Hotel HIbiscus and would recommend to friends and family. It is simple and has a great restaurant and beach located. We will happily return there. Our 9 year old was happy in the pool we could walk along the beach and a small village is close by if you want supplies etc. Staff were ...
