The Island of Moorea. A comprehensive description and general information along with the
most popular tours and activities on Moorea!


Moorea, which has often been likened to James Michener's mythical island of Bali Hai, is only 11 miles from Tahiti. Many visitors say it is worth the airfare to Tahiti just to see Moorea's spectacular bays. The volcanic peaks, reflected in the tranquil waters of Cook's Bay and Opunohu Bay, rise like a shark's jaw from the island's basaltic base. The mountain slopes are covered with pineapple plantations, and white sand beaches border crystalline lagoons.

With a circumference of only 37 miles, and a coastline served by paved road, Moorea can be encircled in a single day's bicycle or car tour. A trip into the interior unveils Moorea's most breathtaking scenery from Le Belvedere Lookout. The opalescent lagoons surrounding the island provide an immense liquid playground. The waters of these extraordinary bays are a perfect anchorage for luxury yachts and sailboats alike. Windsurfing enthusiasts tout Cook's Bay as one of the best sailing spots in French Polynesia. Moorea reveals the South Pacific island paradise of your dreams.
