Popular Things to Do in Moorea
The stunning natural beauty of Moorea, a small island located in French Polynesia, makes it a top destination for cruise travelers and even other Tahitians looking for unspoiled rest and relaxation. The island is covered in mountains, verdant forests and breathtaking lagoons perfect for climbing, hiking, swimming, snorkeling and diving excursions. This remote island doesn't have public transportation and private transfers are pricy, so shore excursions are often a good option for getting around. If you're not looking to exert yourself, book a beach break and simply enjoy the otherworldly scenery.
Peak travel season in Moorea is from May through October, since the island is typically less rainy during this time; temperatures are fairly consistent year-round. Moorea has two official languages -- French and Tahitian -- and though some locals might know a bit of English, it's not terribly common. Currency is the French Polynesian franc.
