This magnificent island is only 11 miles from Tahiti. When you set your eyes on Moorea for the first time you will see verdant green jagged peaks and spires that seem to leap into the sky. Moorea has been described as the most beautiful place on earth, and it's this magical island that inspired James Michener to write about mythical "Bali Hai."

The sculptured beauty of Cook's Bay surrounded by majestic vertical volcanic spires can only be rivaled by its twin bay of Opunohu to the northwest. Moorea is a favorite of all who venture to the South Seas. It is the favorite island of artists and those wishing to experience a real South Seas experience - a casual, barefoot existence amidst white sand beaches, multi-hued lagoons and, of course, quaint Tahitian-style hotels offering plenty of sun and fun activities.
