What I learned was that, Papeete is a stopover destination for travellers to continue on to an outer island or join a cruise.

Moorea is an adventurer’s paradise with lots of land and sea based activities for travellers to choose from and due to its affordability, would be the main destination for New Zealanders.   In Moorea we did an Island Tour which was really fun, there is a choice of adventure vehicles or in the back shuttle bus.  Moorea is a great place to swim with the sting rays and sharks in the crystal clear water which is only waist deep, initially this is scary but it’s a real buzz when you get used to it. 

Bora Bora (my absolute favourite of the three) and is the most photographed.  It is a breath-taking refuge for couples to escape to and enjoy a romantic holiday in absolute bliss.   It is also great for families whose pockets are deep enough.  There are a couple of cheaper options but the 5 star resorts reign supreme. 

Being only a hop, skip and jump away it is a must see on every Kiwi’s bucket list!
