Moorea, The Warm Heart of French Polynesia
Located in the South Pacific Ocean, French Polynesia is a dream destination for people all over the world. The famous over-water bungalows and pristine turquoise-blue lagoons of Bora Bora are the ultimate beach vacation experience for many sun and sea lovers. And without question, Bora Bora is Paradise on Earth that's hard to match! But I'm here to tell you about another island, the Island of Moorea, the one that really made a lasting impression on me and my family!
During our one week in Moorea, we discovered that this is most definitely the local people's favorite island...And there are many reasons why. Simply put, Moorea has it all! Whether you are looking for pristine beaches, snorkeling experiences, luxury over water bungalows, impressive mountains, nature hikes, or mind-blowing views, Moorea has you covered! It's the place for adventurers and beach lovers alike, and we tried to soak up as much of it as we could. Some of out favorite times included an unforgettable Moorea lagoon tour, snorkeling and swimming with stingrays, lunch on a private motu (which is a teeny island off the coast), hike to Magic Mountain, taking in the views from Belvedere and Toatea lookouts, and indulging in the local cuisine and fresh fruit smoothies.
If you are looking for adventures in Paradise, you've come to the right place! As a Tahiti and French Polynesia specialist, I would be thrilled to help you plan your trip of a lifetime...And before you know it, you'll be on your way to Moorea, "the warm heart of Polynesia," and beyond!
