10 Things to do Good for Couples in French Polynesia That You Shouldn't Miss

January 30, 2022 Esmeralda Fenner

Tahiti and Bora Bora are the most well known French Polynesian islands, thanks to their picture-perfect beaches and romantic ambiance. Indeed, these islands are ideal for handholding, with their lush landscapes and mood-setting features like lagoons and grottos. The heart-shaped island of Mo’orea makes a wonderful base for divers and snorkelers eager to explore its surrounding barrier reef system. Feeding the massive, sacred eels of Huahine is a one-in-a-lifetime way to experience an important local ritual.

If you are lucky enough to get a over the water bungalow with a mountain view, you will enjoy the view. it can be sunny, cloudy, rainy, sunsetting, and just simply majestic. There are some guided hiking trails, but you need to be in amazing shape to take on the challenge. have fun

Beach is wonderful and endless sand in waist deep, clear water across the lagoon. Rays and small black tip sharks(harmless). Snorkeling is ok - poor coral but some fish life and at one exotic lionfish.

Magic Mountain

Reviewed By kaylameeceofficial - Savannah, United States

Seriously a must see when visiting Mo’orea along with Belvedere Lookout. We went to Magic Mountain through “Enjoy Mo’orea” tours and I’m so glad we did because there is no way we would of felt comfortable driving up there. It is a one way road and has some very steep parts. We saw some people hiking up which seems fine, just make sure to bring lots of water and some snacks if you decide to hike up to the top. Once we reached the top you have a little bit more of a hike and oh my goodness is the view worth the climb. Absolutely stunning from every angle. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Highly recommend going through a tour so you can see even more of this beautiful island but if you decide not to still make this one of your must sees.

What a great experience! Everything was perfect: - the planning / activities - the crew (so nice, thanks again) - the food and drinks. I am vegetarian and I had a lot to eat. They DO have the best coconut bread. Highly recommended.

Taputapuatea Marae

The largest and most important religious site in Polynesia features the ancient temple area located on the edge of a huge lagoon.

Reviewed By epazota - Minnesota, United States

Who would think in the middle of what felt like no where there is this incredible spot. It is an UNESCO site. It the most culturally important site for the entire Polynesian triangle which includes areas as far away as Easter Island, Hawaii and New Zealand. There are signs to read. I recommend a tour guide if you can. We had a guide whose grandmother was part of the team to reconstruct the site. See this site while you can as the ocean waters are already encroaching some of the sacred spots.

Belvedere Lookout

Overlooking the panoramic Opunohu Valley and Cook and Opunohu Bays, this spectacular scenic overlook was the setting in the popular film, "Return of the Bounty."

Reviewed By Kimbers08 - San Francisco, United States

We took an ATV tour that took us up to Belvedere Lookout. This view is absolutely breathtaking! There are huge mango and avocado trees, several hiking trails, great spots for taking photos, and lots of chickens! We went on a misty day in the offseason and so it wasn't too crowded. However, this area is quite small and I can imagine it is hectic during busier times of the year. This is a view not to be missed!

Temae Beach

Reviewed By shammock2713 - Virginia Beach, United States

This was our favorite beach to visit during our stay on Moorea. It was relatively easy to find and not too far from Toatea lookout. once you turn off the main road, it’s a pretty bumpy dirt/rock road full of potholes. Just drive slowly and dodge as many as you can. Ample parking and shoreline available. There are coconut trees and a few shade spots between the parking and the beachfront. The reef is very easy to access. It’s mostly a sandbar on the left side of the beach, and as you move to the right toward the Sofitel resort bungalows it becomes reef. The area just before the Sofitel bungalows had the best snorkeling we had on all of Moorea, with extremely healthy, mature reef, no signs of coral bleaching, and tons of fish. It’s pretty shallow (5-8’ deep) throughout and makes for east snorkeling. There were plenty of areas to explore it was a good amount of sandy spots in between the coral that you can stand on if you need a break. We brought some bread out there during one of our ventures and the fish were very friendly!
