Moorea is the Polynesia most people hope to find. A short ferry ride from Papeete, Moorea is best enjoyed by taking a journey to its interior. There is a ring road around the island, but about all you see are houses or hotels. Better to get into the Opunohu Valley, then the Belvedere Overlook, which gives a nice view of why the guys on the Bounty mutinied. Stop at the haunting Titiroa Marae, an old sacred platform.
