With its jagged mountain peaks clothed in lush jungle dropping sheer to the blue waters of the South Pacific, Moorea rivals its nearby sister-island, Tahiti, for sheer beauty.

A leading attraction here are the beaches, with some dazzling white and others with deep black, volcanic sand.

Exploring the island

Cook's Bay, MooreaIts mountainous interior is dramatically beautiful and many visitors climb to the saddle between shark-toothed Mount Rotui and towering Mount Tohivea for views of Cook’s Bay on one side of the island and Opunohu Bay on the other, reaching out their sheltering arms to the vast ocean.

Others just relax at sea level, with the island’s infectiously laid-back atmosphere, glorious beaches, and coral seas rich with underwater life.
