Its main city, Papeete, is the beating heart of the island and also the capital of French Polynesia, which is an overseas territory of France.
Moorea soars magically out of the ocean in an explosion of green velvet - what you would imagine a South Seas island to be. A wide, shallow lagoon surrounds the island's vertical mountains where poetic threads of waterfalls tumble down fern-softened cliffs.

Pastel-painted houses surrounded by gardens of hibiscus and birds of paradise, circle the island in a fantasy of happy, yet simple villages, Moorea Island in the heart of French Polynesia, you will immediately be awestruck by it's natural beauty.
Under a one hour flight from the island of Tahiti or Moorea, the island of Bora Bora, with a lagoon resembling an artist's palette of blues and greens, is love at first sight.Romantics from around the world have laid claim to this island where the castle-like Mount Otemanu pierces the sky. Lush tropical slopes and valleys blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace. Perfect white-sand beaches give way to emerald waters where colored fish animate the coral gardens as they greet the giant manta rays. This could be easily be described as the center of the romantic universe, where luxury resorts and spas dot the island with overwater bungalows, thatchedroof villas, and fabled ambience.
Fly into Papeete, Tahiti and recover from your flight with a relaxing stay overnight. After your cozy sleep, explore Papeete’s Le Marché – the central market, dine at the roadside les roulottes or enjoy another Tahiti activity. Enjoy a full day of activities around Papeete and then take a short boat ride to the nearby island of Moorea. If you’re anxious to get to the sandy beach, head to Moorea first thing and explore Papeete on your last day in island paradise.

• Pearl shopping and a visit to the Pearl Museum.
• Visit art galleries and exhibits.

Next, catch a flight directly from Moorea to Bora Bora, and experience the romantic wonderment of staying in an overwater bungalow in the islands where they were first built, or on a motu, overlooking the main island. Nearly all of the resorts on Bora Bora are fantastic, but each one has a unique style, personality and character. During the day, relax by Scuba diving or snorkeling in the famous lagoons, lying on the sugar-sand beach or visiting other nearby Leeward Islands. Some properties have multiple hotels on an island – such as Sofitel on Bora Bora – and will offer their guests discounted rates if they wish to stay at multiple properties in the chain. In addition to the different resort settings, travellers can experience a variety of rooms, such as a beach versus an overwater bungalow. Keep in mind, however, that moving every-other-day is far from a relaxing experience! Try to limit the number of transfers and resorts and you’ll better enjoy your holiday.
Finally, on your last day, return to Tahiti and catch your flight back home, well rested and full of wonderful honeymoon memories.
