On the tattered triangle of Mo'orea, green peaks and ridges jut up out of the flat, fertile valleys.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Belvedere Lookout. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Tiki Village Cultural Center, make a short side trip with Spirou THEBAUD, take in the awesome beauty at Magic Mountain, and enjoy the sand and surf at Tiahura Beach.

To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Moorea trip planner.

Los Angeles, USA to Moorea is an approximately 14-hour combination of flight, ferry, and car. Traveling from Los Angeles to Moorea, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Los Angeles in April, with highs in Moorea at 88°F and lows at 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) early enough to travel to Bora Bora.

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Papeete: Taharuu Beach (in Papara), Bain de Vaima (in Taravao) and Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue). The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Municipal Market, get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, take in the exciting artwork at Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art, and take in the dramatic scenery at Fautaua.
