Tahiti's neighbor Moorea Island features white beaches, soaring peaks, verdant slopes, abundant marinelife, and archaeological sites. Those planning a Moorea vacation will encounter one of French Polynesia's best selections of restaurants, hotels, resorts, sightseeing attractions, and visitor activities.
The top Moorea resort hotels include the Moorea Pearl Resort and Spa at Maharepa, Club Bali Hai Moorea at Paopao, the Sheraton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa at Pihaena, the Beachcomber Intercontinental Resort Moorea between Papetoai and Tiahura, and the Moorea Beach Club and Hotel Hibiscus Moorea at Tiahura.
Getting there is easy on the frequent highspeed ferry from Tahiti to Vaiare Wharf, or on Air Moorea to Temae Airport. Our Moorea map shows the 59-kilometer road which circles the island, and regular buses meet the ferries. Taxis on Moorea are expensive, so make sure airport transfers are included in your travel package (if you'll be flying).
The popular circle island Moorea tour usually includes a trip up to Belvedere lookout with its sweeping view of the entire north coast. One of French Polynesia's most intriguing collections of old Polynesian temples or marae is just below Belvedere, and all in all, laidback Moorea offers the perfect escape from the bustle of Tahiti.
