Bucket list worthy adventure, fewer tourists.

Just northeast of Tahiti lies the hidden jewel of French Polynesia. Swathed in white sand beaches and crowned with verdant mountain peaks, Moorea offers the stunning views, amazing wildlife, and stilted bungalows of the region’s larger islands—but with the charm of a private paradise.

A former retreat for Tahitian royalty, Moorea is home to a traditional farming village, diverse marine life, and winding jungle roads, ideal for exploring. Ride out the warm, humid temperatures by discovering one of the Island’s many waterfalls. Or, go beneath the surface of the turquoise waters to snorkel and scuba the reefs surrounding Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay—keeping an eye out for sharks, stingrays, and tropical fish.

Despite its remoteness, there are a variety of exciting ways to get around the small island. Walk along the streets that line the shore, taking in images of fishermen paddling traditional outrigger canoes and pareo-clad women heading to the market. Head inland towards the lush green mountains and hike the extensive trail network. Pack a picnic of local baguette, meats, cheeses, and Hinano beer and set out on a romantic moped adventure for two.

Of, course there’s plenty more to see in the water. Experience the archipelago’s biodiversity with a visit to Moorea’s Dolphin Center. Sunbathe on the white sandy beaches and grab some poisson cru from a roulotte food truck. Set sail on a glass-bottom boat tour to explore the beauty of Moorea’s shimmering lagoon or take to the air with a paragliding adventure. By sea, sky, or land, there are endless ways to explore Moorea.
