On the tattered triangle of Mo'orea, green peaks and ridges jut up out of the flat, fertile valleys.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Ta'ahiamanu Beach and Toatea Lookout. You'll get in some beach time at Tiahura Beach and Temae Beach. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Route des Ananas, experience rural life at Lycee Agricole Opunohu, look for gifts at Have a Nice Pearl, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Magic Mountain.

The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
