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.
The property itself is beautiful. We truly loved the overwater bungalow experience and our room was excellent. The only downside to the Hilton Moorea is the dining experience. The food is incredibly overpriced and very basic for this type of resort. Staff were incredibly friendly up until the last ...
This was a really beautiful resort. Sun rise from the beach was unbelievable. The infinity pool was large. Beach was clean. Food quality was great. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
This is one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Everyone a the hotel is so pleasant and helpful. Sometimes they are a little slow in getting your room cleaned, but they will get it done and work around your schedule.
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 ...
Location was great! Beautiful views, fairly close to the airport, friendly people who were accommodating and good food. What I didnt like was for the price you pay the property needs some serious maintenance. Tile was falling off the bathroom walls, fixtures were heavily caulked, the a/c did not ...
This is a nice place BUT beware of an important point: The Owners have elected to NOT install screens on the windows. We found mosquitos to be a big problem and received numerous bites in the evening hours. Our 6 year old stayed in the loft and was bitten over 10 times the first night because we ...
Quiet, beautiful property and water views. A pier you could walk on-viewing fish and black tip sharks swimming. Breakfast delivered on your porch. Friendly, welcoming, and helpful owners and staff!. A wonderful place to stay!
