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!
