Pareo Perso, Papetoai

4.7
#8 of 21 in Shopping in Moorea
Pareo Perso lets you design your own Polynesian skirt in the traditional way--having the sun affix colors, patterns, and images to the fabric. Through this process, known as heliography, you draw a rectangle in the sand to size your pareo, choose your colors, and, if you wish, select one of the stencil designs that Lise has created and cut by hand. After everything is in place, the sun does the rest by printing your the colors and stencils onto the fabric. Note that this activity remains weather-dependent, so you must show up from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM to see if the activity is possible rather than book in advance. Your finished pareo will be machine washable (cold wash and rinse). To visit Pareo Perso on your holiday in Moorea, and find out what else Moorea has to offer, use our Moorea holiday planner .

    No one was disappointed on our return to metropolis by the sarong. It is very rare to be able to choose our future pareos making, we have to jump on the opportunity.

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.
