Lesser known (and less expensive) than its sister island Bora Bora, Moorea is just as beautiful with as many (or as little) activities as you can jam into a day. Although the best thing to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the gentle breezes, beautiful sunsets and island hospitality!

Taking a plunge from our overwater bungalow was the start to yet another perfect day. We had a great time staying at the Intercontinental Moorea with our kids. The water is spectacular for swimming, snorkeling and all kinds of watersports. We all loved it!
It's just a black tip
Diving in French Polynesia one supposedly gets used to the seeing black tip reef sharks. You actually feel comfortable in their presence (after all we are not a part of their food chain). We took a few dives with our kids while traveling on the Paul Gauguin cruise ship, our dive master was Clement, who was wonderful! A ton of fun, very safe, and just the right amount of adventure!
This photo was captured on an unbelievable morning. The blue water mesmerizing words really can't describe... you just have to dive in! (from our overwater bungalow at the IC Moorea).
