#5 of 9 in Beaches in French Polynesia
Take a rejuvenating trip to Punaauia Beach, a quiet sandy beach renowned for its snorkeling opportunities and calm, shallow water. Popular with locals, the beach's clear water makes it a great place to spot colorful sea creatures and coral, whether you're paddling, swimming, or snorkeling. Gaze out to sea at the island of Moorea, and relax under the palm trees that line the shore. Browse the handicraft shop that operates here, and treat yourself to a souvenir or snack.
