Holidays to Moorea

Holidays to Moorea

A divine, heart-shaped island carpeted in greenery, Moorea emerges beautifully from the sparkling seas of French Polynesia. While not as emblematic as Tahiti, or as famous as Bora Bora, this lesser-known islet is like a best-kept secret, flaunting jaw-dropping landscapes that characterise the South Pacific archipelago. Having taken the short boat ride from Pape’ete, step onto bone-white sands and contemplate just where to start first, on your luxury Moorea holiday or honeymoon. You could dive into the mountains for hiking, biking and 4x4 adventures, relishing the view down to the bays; or delve into the lagoons themselves to snorkel, jet ski and even go whale watching. Families will love the Moorea Dolphin Centre, while couples can take their pick from endless romantic perches from which to drink it all in. Otherwise, just make straight for your luxurious hotel, and let the pampering begin!

Moorea Activities

Get off the beaten track in Moorea, one of French Polynesia’s most scenic islands. Much of the fun here is water-based – go dolphin and whale watching, brave an underwater flying experience or helmet dive and hand-feed rays on a snorkel excursion. Prefer to stay dry? Explore by glass-bottomed boat or sunset catamaran cruise. On land, there’s all sorts of adventures in Moorea’s lush terrain – go ziplining above the treetops, hike archaeological ruins, pineapple fields and volcanoes, zoom around by 4x4 or skydive and see it all from above. 

Moorea Food & Drink

Most dishes are served with starch in the form of rice, cassava or Taro root while Taro leaves, breadfruit and bananas are served as vegetables. You’ll find many dishes are made with coconut milk and lime juice. Dining out? There’s everything from food trucks to fine dining here.
