Beach of the Week: Moorea

Relaxation awaits on Moorea

This week, we bring you not just a beach, but a whole island!  With beaches!  Located just miles from Tahiti in French Polynesia, Moorea is a compact island of dramatic beauty.  Tall mountain peaks with lush, deep green vegetation are surrounded by beaches; some with white sand, some with black.  There are several beaches to visit, including beautiful Temae Beach, the longest beach on the island.  Snorkeling is a popular pastime, and for good reason: the water is crystal clear, and sea life abounds in the coral.  A popular day trip is a “motu tour”, where a boat will take you to watch sharks feed, swim with manta rays, then snorkel off a motu (small island within the reef) while a Polynesian lunch is prepared for you. 

The hardest part about planning a trip to Moorea is deciding where you’ll stay; there are several wonderful luxury resorts to choose from.  Accommodations in a picturesque beach bungalow would be fantastic, but staying in one of Moorea’s overwater bungalows would be simply amazing.  Imagine looking down from your room into the clear water at brightly colored fish.  As evening comes, you sit on your private veranda, and take in the perfect sunset.  Paradise, indeed.
