#41 of 115 in Things to do in Moorea
Look out past the wooden fishing huts built on foundations reaching out into the bay, across to the island of Tahiti at Toatea Lookout. The viewpoint offers a great perspective on all that is Polynesian: the traditional man-made structures of island life, the tranquility of the lagoon, and the lush vegetation. Take photo after photo and pack a picnic to enjoy at this easily accessible, roadside location, set high on the hill.

    We have left the maritime station, turn right in the direction of our hotel, and there on the low side, a breathtaking view of the turquoise blue lagoon. Just Grand!

    The view over the bay is really nice and there is no need to walk or climb, just pull out and enjoy the view over the nicest lagoon on the island  more »

    This parking area on the side of the road offers great views of the Temae beach and the Sofitel resort out toward Tahiti and the whales as they play in the water outside the reef.  more »

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.
