One of the best places to begin your vacation in French Polynesia is Moorea. Sports, culture, fine food, well-being and a large choice of leisure activities. All of this and more in an exceptional setting, with views that will take your breath away.

A visit to the island of Moorea

The island of Moorea is a vast playground, on land, at sea and up in the air.
There are endless activities above and below the waves; jetski, paddleboard, outrigger canoe, transparent kayaks for admiring the marine life, snorkeling, whale watching, swimming with sharks and manta rays… And from time to time, just relaxing on the soft white sand and admiring the stunning scenery.

On the island itself, you can enjoy fine local cuisine, savor deliciously sweet pineapples, go hiking in the mountains, hire a bike, e-bike or quad ATV, or go on a four-wheel drive safari. And to really appreciate the beauty of this island paradise, take to the skies for a parachute jump or a flight in a helicopter. Like Bora Bora, Moorea is a very popular destination, especially for the local population. To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you reserve your accommodation and activities in advance.

Enjoy Moorea from top to bottom!
