    The island was mountainous and visually, the most beautiful, IMHO. Very easy to get to from t=the island of Tahiti, either a 15 minute plane ride or a ferry.

    Jump on a ferry in Papeete, and take the short trip to the beautiful, heart-shaped island of Moorea. Once you arrive, board Le Truck--the local bus--to explore the island. Much more low key than the main island of Tahiti, Moorea shouldn't be missed while visiting French Polynesia.

    This heart-shaped French Polynesian paradise, Bora-Bora’s less-visited sister island, satisfies every South Seas fantasy. Travelers can snorkel in the crystalline blue lagoons, horseback ride along the deep bays, or just laze on coconut-strewn beaches like half-mile-long Opunohu Beach.

    Where to Stay: At Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort, thatched-roof overwater bungalows float on stilts over a coral reef, with views of Tahiti in the distance. sofitel.com

    Laid back island. Great for resort life, but only a few excursions you can do without joining a tour. Definitely recommend renting a car for at least a couple days. Only a couple nice public beaches, but some of the resorts have good beach access and nearly all have nice pools.

    Moorea is the next island over from Tahiti, where all international flights fly into. It is much smaller and has a much calmer pace of life than the more bustling island of Tahiti. Moorea is the easiest island to get to in French Polynesia from Tahiti, because you can take a 20-30 min ferry ride rather than needing to take a flight. The ferry ride can be bumpy, though - it might be unpleasant if you are prone to sea sickness. I love Moorea, the people there are very friendly and you will often find yourself with locals if you venture out from your hotel. Nearly every nice dinner restaurant on Moorea offers free car pickup from your hotel, which is nice because cab fares are extremely expensive on all islands!

    Closer to Papeete and the International Airport, only a ferry ride away. Idyllic reefs and lagoons coupled with a mountainous interior to explore.

    Moorea is the closest island in vicinity to the island of Tahiti- which serves as the final destination for international airline carriers. While Tahiti is a beautiful island in its own right, many tourists find it difficult to maneuver and tend to venture to the more notorious outer islands of French Polynesia (which I would suggest). While Bora Bora and its colorful lagoons ignite visions of overwater bungalows and paradise found, the island of the rich and famous can be extremely pricey, including the 300-400$ 45 minute flight.
    Moorea, a larger island, with one road encircling the volcanic center (you can throw out the GPS), offers beaches and views that surely challenge those of Bora Bora in beauty, and of course, overwater bungalows a-plenty. When it comes to vacationing in Moorea, most of your time will be spent at the resort in terms of eating and activities. With that in mind, take care in choosing where you stay and your Moorea vacation will be set. Accessable by a 45 minute ferry ride (20$ round trip) or a up and down puddle jump flight, I would not hesitate in suggesting Moorea as a destination for newcomers to the South Pacific.

    You need to go to Moorea, the more short commercial flight in the world. Around 5 minutes

Description

Located approximately six miles west of northern Tahiti Nui, the tropical island Moorea is similarly beautiful compared to it’s better known neighbor. Capped off by the gravity defying sheer cliffs of Bali Hai Mountain, this incredible location has every bit the natural beauty, but much less commotion compared to some of the other better known French Polynesian vacation destinations. Fewer visitors mean more pristine beaches, cheaper everything, and a more authentic cultural experience. Farming is big in this mostly rural area. Chickens can be seen pecking around most everywhere, but it’s their morning island wake-up call that really gets them noticed. Thanks primarily to special attention from the French government; the roads on Moorea are very well maintained, which makes getting around this small island easy. Still, with an extremely high rate from local taxis, drunk driving is a problem here, so plan your transportation carefully. With nearly no violent crime, this tropical gem is happy to fly somewhat under the radar. Plan your next visit soon before word gets around about this affordable and exquisite pacific destination.
