Tiahura Beach, Haapiti

4.6
#6 of 8 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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Moorea holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tiahura Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I think that it is one of the best beaches of the island. With fine white sand and water transparent in Moorea lagoon. It has palm trees and vegetation almost down to the water with assured shadow. Its breathtaking sunsets.

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.
