Moorea island

Ultimate guide 2017
Moorea is the second most popular island in French Polynesia. It is like a more affordable kind of Bora Bora, - but the beaches are not so beautiful here, and it is not an atoll. But Moorea is relatively cheap, and it is located just near Tahiti. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Though Moorea is relatively budget island, the hotels can still be very expensive. We recommend to take a room for no more than US$500 per night, as there are a lot of great options in Bora-Bora for just above US$500.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Tahiti International Airport (PPT). Next fly to Moorea airport (MOZ) or take a ferry (50 minutes per way - US$15). Next hire a taxi or take a bus. In many cases you may just walk around Moorea island, but the best is to rent a bicycle.

Except for Aremiti ferry, there is also Terevau ferry from Tahiti to Moorea. It is a little cheaper, so it is best to book in advance.

Hi, Jim!

Tahiti is not a good place for a bicycle.

As for Moorea, try to ask your hotel for advise. It will be about US$15 per day. And in many cases the hotel provides bicycle for free. Same for Bora Bora.

I'm having difficulty finding a location on Tahiti and Moorea where I can rent a bicycle for my week's stay there. Any ideas?
