Beirut, Lebanon to Moorea is an approximately 32-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also fly. You'll gain 12 hours traveling from Beirut to Moorea due to the time zone difference. In July, daytime highs in Moorea are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Bora Bora.

Tropical paradise doesn't get more surreal than on Maupiti Island, a volcano perched on a coral atoll and surrounded by a horseshoe of forested land.

The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.

There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, see the interesting displays at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, stop by Papeete Roulottes, and contemplate the long history of James Norman Hall Home.
