Silversea Luxury Cruises À Moorea Island

Moorea is called the "sister island" of Tahiti andits proximity—just 19 km (12 mi) away across the Sea of Moon—has assured a steady stream of both international and local visitors. Cutting into the northern side of the island are the dramatic Opunohu Bay and Cook's Bay the latter backed by the shark-toothed Mt. Mouaroa and home to many resorts and restaurants. Between the two bays majestic Mt. Rotui rises 2 020 feet (616 meters) and steep jagged mountain ridges run across the island. View more

From the Belvedere lookout there are awesome views of these bays and mountains including the tallest peak—the thumb-shaped Mt. Tohiea reaching 3 960 feet (1 207 meters) into the clouds. Moorea is ringed by a coral reef enclosing a beautiful and quite narrow lagoon. Unlike other islands in the Society group Moorea has only a couple of motu (islets) and they are located off the northwest corner. It's also believed to be the "birthplace" of the legendary overwater bungalow: a trio of Californian guys who came to Moorea in the 1950s and became known as the Bali Hai boys reportedly dreamt up this unique style of hotel room. The lagoon and bays can be discovered on organized excursions that may include a picnic lunch on one of the motu at the island's northwest corner. There are also small motorboats for hire for a half or full day with no license required.
