BEST TAXI RIDE - INTERCONTINENTAL MOOREA RESORT & SPA

So once we got on the island of Mo’orea in the French Polynesia 🇵🇫 we had to find a ride to our hotel, the Intercontinental Moorea Resort and spa. The resort was on the other side of the island and really the only best way to get there was by taxi.

The taxis line up at the ferry terminal so it’s easy to fine. What was nice about our taxi driver was she was very informative about the island and had a lots of history.

Also we give you a little tour of our room at the INTERCONTINENTAL MOOREA RESORT & SPA

FLYING to TAHITI (PPT) Papeete / Moorea from Los Angeles (LAX) International Airport

Direct (non-stop) flight from Los Angeles (LAX) International Airport to Fa'a'ā (PPT) International Airport in Pape'ete on Christmas Eve/Day. There are no direct flights to Mo'orea. To travel to Mo'orea you must fly to Tahiti / Pape'ete and transfer to Mo'orea via ferry which takes approx :30 minutes. LAX is very crowded on holidays, so for international flights, be sure to arrive at the check-in counter no less than 3 hours prior to your flight, so you can be through security and at your departure gate at least 1 hour before departure. Since you have to take a bus from the departure gate to the plane, they start boarding 1 hour prior to takeoff (unlike domestic flights which board :30 minutes prior to takeoff).

The flight from LAX to Tahiti (PPT) is 8.25 hours, and from PPT to LAX on the return flight home it was 8.10 hours.

We booked our flights with Air Tahiti Nui, hotel at Sofitel la Ora Beach Resort, round-trip ferry from Tahiti to Moorea, and round-trip ground transportation to and from the hotel through Pacific For Less.

Moorea French Polynesia The Magical island in Ultra 4k

version en français plus bas.
Moorea
The Magical Island
Believed to have inspired the mythical Bali Hai from James Michener's Tales of the South Pacific, Moorea is one of the most scenically striking islands in French Polynesia. Despite her immaculate beauty, she is far from unapproachable. Possessing a relaxed vibe and welcoming spirit, Moorea is just as warm and inviting as the Tahitians lucky enough to call this island home.

The Locale

Located only ten nautical miles from Tahiti, Moorea is easily accessible by ferry or plane from Papeete. This proximity, coupled with the island's receptive and neighborly nature, makes Moorea a favorite destination for couples, families and locals. Still, Moorea has managed to maintain its small island feel despite this popularity and the presence of a few internationally branded resorts.

The Allure

The attraction toward Moorea comes as no surprise; the island is a geographical marvel. Eight voluminous mountain peaks rise from its translucent lagoon, creating a distinctive and rugged silhouette visible from the western coast of Tahiti. Splitting the northern shore are two symmetrical bays: Cook's (Paopao) and Opunohu Bay. The island is roughly shaped like a heart from overhead; and in the theme of love and romance, Moorea is one of the top honeymoon destinations in Tahiti—second only to Bora Bora.
Moorea

L'île magique

Croyant avoir inspiré le mythique Bali Hai des contes de James Michener du Pacifique Sud, Moorea est l'une des îles les plus frappantes de la Polynésie française. Malgré sa beauté immaculée, elle est loin d'être inaccessible. Doté d'une ambiance détendue et d'un esprit accueillant, Moorea est tout aussi chaleureuse et accueillante que les Tahitiens assez chanceux pour appeler cette île à la maison.


Situé à seulement dix milles nautiques de Tahiti, Moorea est facilement accessible en ferry ou en avion depuis Papeete. Cette proximité, associée à la nature réceptive et de bon voisinage de l'île, fait de Moorea une destination préférée pour les couples, les familles et les habitants. Pourtant, Moorea a réussi à maintenir sa petite île malgré cette popularité et la présence de quelques stations de marque internationales.

L'attraction vers Moorea ne surprend pas; L'île est une merveille géographique. Huit volumineux sommets montent à partir de sa lagune translucide, créant une silhouette distinctive et rugueuse visible de la côte occidentale de Tahiti. La division de la rive nord est divisée en deux baies symétriques: Cook (Paopao) et Opunohu Bay. L'île est à peu près en forme d'un cœur de la tête; Et dans le thème de l'amour et de l'amour, Moorea est l'une des destinations de lune de miel supérieure à Tahiti, seulement pour Bora Bora.

Diving in The Islands of Tahiti

Around all The Islands of Tahiti, dramatic views continue below the water. Divers and snorkelers are amazed by the density of large marine life. Regular encounters include manta rays whose gigantic wingspan eclipses the passing diver; schools of dolphin dancing along the surf; sharks seemingly at every turn; and, in the Austral Islands, humpback whales thrill the lucky spectators in their annual parade.

Pape'ete, Tahiti guide. Town, resort & street food.

Jean has visited Papeete twice and both times has left the town quite quickly to a beach resort. An overnight allows you to try street food here which is quite a special experience. See the town, a resort and street food all on the film.

Tahiti sounds like a paradise. It has some of the best sea in the world, some great beaches. Some terrific resorts, but even for the locals the logic of the expensive economy has to be challenged. Take a look at our film and see a little of Tahiti, more than just the port.

Our top things to do in Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Moorea (French Polynesia islands)

Our trip to French Polynesia was like Paradise. We got to see amazing islands, including the island of Tahiti, the island of Moorea, and of course the island of Bora Bora. We swam in amazing turquoise blue water. We were able to swim with the sharks and swim with the sting rays in the lagoon of Bora Bora and saw manta rays, moray eels, and sea turtles.

The highlight of our vacation to Bora Bora was our stay at an overwater bungalow at the Intercontinental Bora Bora. It was the overwater bungalow like you see on brochures. There are lots of Bora Bora hotels, some with overwater bungalows, some on the mainland, but the overwater bungalows is one of the iconic things to do in Bora Bora.

MOOREA LAGOONARIUM IN 4K | SNORKELING FRENCH POLYNESIA

This video will show you Moorea, French Polynesia in 4k. We visited one of the most beautiful places, the Lagoonarium.

We spent the day exploring Moorea and seeing the small island right off the main island of Moorea. It was a beautiful spot to do snorkeling, feeding sharks, sting rays, and fish. The excursion is about $40 USD per person when you book it at the actual location in Moorea. Once you pay, you get a boat transfer out to the small island and it is up to you how long you want to stay and hang out.

The lagoonarium is actually the 3rd best activity to visit on the island of Moorea. To get there, it is a quick ferry from Tahiti and the ferries are running throughout the day so getting over there is flexible.
