Accommodation in Moorea
Moorea is part of the Leeward Islands of the Society Islands, and is located 19 kilometers west of Tahiti. Like Tahiti, Moorea is mountainous and surrounded by a stunning turquoise lagoon, but Moorea has a much more impressive skyline than Tahiti.
Life on Moorea is much slower than in Tahiti, although the crossing is only a short boat ride of about forty minutes. But then you come to a different world, with razor-sharp ridges, dense jungle and hidden coves, where graceful manta rays relax by divers and snorkelers.
There is a wide variety of accommodation options on this beautiful island.
