French Polynesia

Mo’orea holidays

Things to do

HAVE MORE IN MO’OREA

One of the most beautiful islands in French Polynesia, Mo’orea holidays are an escape to a Pacific paradise where the only thing more stunning than the scenery is the service. Choose your luxurious hotel, pick your perfect beach, order the most indulgent cocktail on the menu, and… relax.

Just a 15-minute flight or a 45-minute high-speed ferry from the Tahitian capital of Pape’ete, Mo’orea offers beautiful beaches, bustling bays, a wildlife-filled lagoon, and a mountainous inland filled with hidden villages, ancient temples, lush woodland, and cascading waterfalls. Hike, bike, or take a 4WD tour to explore the island attractions at a pace that suits you. Sail the lagoon on a canoe, jet-ski, or catamaran. Swim with sharks and rays. Help rehabilitate injured and orphaned turtles. Or watch whales breaching at the edge of the ocean.

Explore fruit plantations, shop for rare black pearls, and browse for local art in quaint village galleries. Dance and sing at a traditional Island Night cultural show, take a romantic dinner cruise, or watch the sunset from the comfort of your resort bungalow at the lagoon’s edge. Mo’orea is the perfect size to make exploration easy while offering something new to discover every day you stay. Choose barbecues in the sand or fine dining by the pool. Choose off-road safaris or yacht cruises. Choose to relax and enjoy a resort pampering, or get active and find an island adventure.

Whether you’re travelling with a partner, the whole family, or even on your own, Mo’orea is an ideal choice for your South Pacific holidays.

Things to do in Mo’orea

Sit back and enjoy the view with a cocktail in hand, stroll along the beach at sunset, or get into the water and discover the rich marine life surrounding your island paradise. Rent an e-bike, scooter, or car and drive the island's scenic coastal road. Hike to find tucked-away waterfalls cascading into rock pools, perfect for swimming. Take a 4WD safari to find Tahitian temples and coral gardens. Climb Mount Rotui, Magic Mountain, or Belvedere Lookout, passing jungle villages and pineapple plantations, to enjoy panoramic views of the entire island.

Beaches

Feel as though you’re on a movie set when you push your toes into the sand of your favourite Mo’orea beach. Relax as vendors serve fresh cocktails straight to your lounger from lunchtime to long after sunset leaving you nothing to do but enjoy views of the mountain peaks above, the blue lagoon at your feet, and the people passing by.

Enjoy live music drifting on the breeze at Temae Beach. Or skip the crowds and relax on the narrow white sand of Tiahura Beach. Whether on a protected hotel shore or public sands, you’ll feel safe, comfortable, and completely at ease on any Mo’orea beach you choose.

On the lagoon

No matter whether you leap into the water from your overwater bungalow, or cruise on a luxury catamaran, Mo’orea’s lagoon is a landscape ripe for exploration. Paddle across the surface in a glass bottom kayak and watch the marine world passing beneath your seat.

Snorkel gently beside the beach or take it to the next level and explore remote reefs on a sea scooter tour. Sail around the island at sunset with a cocktail in hand, explore hidden bays and move among dolphins and turtles on a jet-ski safari, or dive in to swim with whales, sharks, and rays.

Best time to visit Mo’orea

Consistent average temperatures of 26°C to 28°C and sunny days throughout the year mean there is never a bad time to visit Mo’orea and French Polynesia. The long winter season, from May to October, is the best time to visit the island as the days are dry and humidity is at its lowest. June to August are the busiest months and flexible travellers seeking to arrive at quieter times will enjoy the transition months of November and April where the weather is usually still consistent but Mo’orea experiences fewer visitors.

Show More
Show Less

Summer, from December to March, is slightly hotter but experiences significantly increased rainfall. Great off-season savings can be enjoyed and most showers are short and heavy but weather can be unpredictable throughout and cyclones, though rare, are not unknown during this time.
