Coming to Moorea
To cross the 17 km which split it up from Tahiti you will have the choice between 2 boats companies :

and 1 of airplane:Air Tahiti.
The 60 km of road where the speed is limited at 60 km/h will allow you to discover fantastic landscapes whether you visit the island by car, scooter or bicycle.
The spectacular landscape is all over the place, with almost unfrequented quite white sand beaches.
The lagoon wildlife is rich and you'll enjoy many aquatic activities.
Snorkeling, rental boats, jet-ski, kayaks, scuba-diving, whales watching (July to end of October ), dolphins watching, ray feeding, kite-surf and surf : all is possible according with your envy and your budget.
Hiking in the heart of the caldera you'll find a generous luxuriant nature. The ancient Polynesian built their housing and religious centers, all around “Le Belvédère” where are situated the main preserved Archeological sites.
Through the hiking trails running in the rainforest during your hiking (by foot, horse or quad), the guides will take you on a journey to discover our treasures and Island beauty.
The Rotui, Mou'a Ro'a, Mou'a Puta, Cook's Bay and Opunohu Bay are perfectly recognizable and make Moorea famous and are a pleasure for any photograph.
Here, simplicity and relaxation is a must.
No clothing constraint, so “proper attire” means just not being barefoot and not being in swimsuit when you're going to a restaurant or a shop.
Further you may take only summer clothing and a sweatshirt for the evenings on cool season.
