Travel tips you can trust
Moorea is one of the world's most picturesque tropical islands - and the sheer beauty of its Cook's Bay (see photo) and Opunohu Bay moves one's spirit.
You view jagged mountain peaks, lush tropical foliage, and white-sand beaches bordering turquoise lagoons surrounded by coral reefs. Two majestic bays reach far inland, including Cook's Bay.
Enjoy a stunning view of the peaks, bays and lagoons from a vantage high up a mountain.
Drive around Moorea along its photogenic shore-hugging road. Do it with an organized tour or on your own with a rented car or scooter. This 65-kilometer (40 mile) drive takes an average of 4 hours.
Unwind in your over-the-water bungalow at one of Moorea's lagoon-fronting resorts.
You have a wide choice including snorkeling, diving, fishing and sailing.
