Moorea

Moorea ©
On the tattered triangle of Mo'orea, green peaks and ridges jut up out of the flat, fertile valleys.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Ta'ahiamanu Beach and Tiahura Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Route des Ananas and Lycee Agricole Opunohu. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Magic Mountain, admire the sheer force of Afareaitu Waterfalls, meet the residents at Lagoonarium, and take some stellar pictures from Belvedere Lookout.

Plan my Moorea trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Regina, Canada to Moorea is an approximately 23.5-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Tahiti Time (TAHT), which is usually a -4 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Regina in August; daily highs in Moorea reach 33°C and lows reach 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Sun) to allow time for travel to Bora Bora.

Bora Bora

There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world.
Visiting Matira Beach and Bora Bora Turtle Centre will get you outdoors. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Leopard Rays Trench and Mount Pahia. There's much more to do: get impressive views of Mount Otemanu, take in the exciting artwork at Bora Art Upstairs, look for gifts at Baldini perles, and see Off-Road Tours.

To see where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, read Bora Bora route builder.

Traveling by combination of taxi, flight, and ferry from Moorea to Bora Bora takes 3.5 hours. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Maupiti Island.

Maupiti Island

Tropical paradise doesn't get more surreal than on Maupiti Island, a volcano perched on a coral atoll and surrounded by a horseshoe of forested land.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Sat): make a trip to Le Palais de la mer, head outdoors with Mt. Teurafaatiu, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Tereia Beach.

Papeete, Tahiti

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.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Sun): head outdoors with Vallee de la Papenoo and then take in the dramatic scenery at Faarumai Waterfalls. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 17th (Mon): stroll through Taharuu Beach and then admire the natural beauty at The Water Gardens of Vaipahi.

Discover how to plan a Papeete trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Fly from Maupiti Island to Papeete in 2.5 hours. In August in Papeete, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 25°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
