Welcome to Moorea! The beautiful island just off the coast of Tahiti is, truly, our favorite place in the entire world at this point. Just 20 minutes by ferry from Tahiti lies the spectacular island paradise, home to several overwater hotels and mom and pop boutiques. So, we’re here to share the top three things to keep in mind when planning your vacation! We’re going to share where to stay, what to do and activities that are not to be missed.

While Moorea is a small island, there’s an incredible amount to do. From ATV tours around the island, hiking inland, scuba diving and dining out at wonderful restaurants, you cannot go wrong with the beauty of the island.

Our first tip is to visit Les Tipaniers Beach. We’ve stayed at the little hotel before, on our first trip to Moorea, but it’s a must-do for anyone looking to kite board, or simply visit one of the most picturesque beaches on the island.

Second, stay in an overwater hut! At often half the price of Bora Bora, you can stay in an overwater bungalow and wake up to the bluest water you’ll ever see. Check out the Hilton or Sofitel for the best options.

Lastly, a boat tour is a must. The island is completely circled by a large lagoon, allowing the calm waters to softly lap agains the shore. Exploring by boat is an excellent option if you want to see the island from a whole new perspective. Overall, Moorea has so much to explore and we highly recommend a stay on our favorite place on earth.
