Tiahura Beach, Haapiti

4.5
#7 of 9 in Beaches in French Polynesia
Relax on the white sand of Tiahura Beach, and explore the bay for exotic creatures of the deep. The waters of this secluded public beach offer great opportunities to spot rays and blacktip reef sharks not far from the shore. The shallow, warm, clear water is ideal for swimmers of all abilities, while the palm trees lining the beach provide shade. Take a kayak out into the bay for a new perspective on the land, and to snap photographs of the marine life gliding beneath you. A visit to Tiahura Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Moorea vacation trip planner to plot your vacation.

    We visited off of a cruise ship and the local tour companies dropped the passengers at this beach. They take you out to the sharks and sting rays out a ways off shore and you can snorkel on both sides...  more »

    Surely the most spot on Moorea. A dream setting, a postcard scenery, crystal clear, turquoise water. Not to be missed

Where to stay in Moorea

On Mo'orea, even the budget accommodations enjoy prime beachfront locations on beautiful turquoise lagoons. Camping is the most affordable option, mainly concentrated in the northwest of the island. Family-run pensions (boarding houses) can also offer great, no-frills, budget-friendly lodging--although finding contact details and booking can take a little effort. The biggest draw on Mo'orea, however, remain the luxury beach resorts and overwater bungalows on the lagoons, mostly strung across the island's northern edge. Prices for these start in the mid range, but climb quickly into the high end for the most lavish options.
