Temae Beach, Moorea

4.6
#2 of 8 in Beaches in French Polynesia
Laze on the secluded shores at Temae Beach, enjoying views of the eastern side of Moorea and across the water to Tahiti. The well-maintained public beach offers opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Coral heads, tropical fish, and fantastically clear water make this a great place for observing French Polynesia's famous marine life. Restrooms and beachside restaurants provide a convenient and relaxing place to dry off and enjoy a meal after a dip in the ocean.

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.
