In this post I’ll share pictures from some of our activities on Moorea. We stayed 5 nights at the Hilton Moorea and were able to see the plenty the Island has to offer. This post is part of a larger trip report from our two week “Year of the B” trip to French Polynesia“. Moorea was the first island stop and we enjoyed swimming in the ocean, hiking, and a nice 4 hour car ride around the island.

Morning Swim Off Bungalow

Each morning it was easy to just dive right into the ocean since it is literally at your door step. The area around the bungalows was full of sea life. The swimming was easy with little to no current. Plenty of coral and fish to see if you are into snorkeling.

Island Drive

One day we rented a car from a local company. The Hilton front desk was very helpful in securing a manual 4 door car at a reasonable price. The car rental companies will come to your hotel to pick you up and take you to the car.

Belvedere Lookout

The Belvedere lookout was a great way to see the island from a view. From the lookout you can see Mount Rotui, Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay.

Shark Feeding

Each night the Hilton would feed the sharks near the bar between the overwater bungalows.

Bottom Line

Moorea offers great outdoor activities. Its easy to just sit around in paradise and enjoy the views, but I would recommend getting out and seeing all the island has to offer.
