The island of Moorea is one of the most well traveled and touristed destinations in all of Tahiti Polynesia. Despite its popularity, most who arrive are quite unfamiliar with basic information about the island: facts, basic cultural knowledge, the weather and people, animals, art, or even where the beaches are located. Although visitors usually arrive with the simple desire to just relax and take in the Pacific Island charm, it doesn't take long before the true nature of French Polynesia begins to unfold for them, as it does with ALL other Tahitian islands... A couple of days on Moorea and they begin to recognize it for it's many faces beyond a mere "Island vacationland." Filled with a unique energy unto itself, Moorea is a favorite among the Society Islands for a variety of reasons, many of which are listed on this page. There's no place on earth quite like it... Of course return travelers and local inhabitants know that. Each lives or returns to Moorea for their own reasons... Moorea is no doubt one of the favorite travel destinations in all of French Polynesia. Not only a well advertised international travel "paradise", its close proximity to the island of Tahiti makes it popular among Tahitians. Just a 25 minute ferry ride from the Papeete hustle and bustle to the chilled out atmosphere of Moorea makes it an enticing and relaxing "weekend getaway" location. It is so popular with Tahitians, in fact, that it could almost be considered to be an extension of the island of Tahiti, minus Papeete. French Polynesia offers world class sailing and private boat chartering and tour opportunities and the island of Moorea is among every boater's favorite destinations. Its magnificent beauty and close proximity to Tahiti make it charter and sailing friendly for a simple one day trip to a multiple day excursion. Moorea has a good number of sailing charter options, yachts, and private boat excursions and packages for just about every boating or sailing experience you can dream of.
