Moorea

It’s a nice island, where the locals start having the feeling having too much cruisers around. So please respect them. At the moment, they have a law admitting a cruiser boat for 7-10 days, they are trying to change it through 2 days per anchorage.


Shops: Supermarket in PaoPao, at the end of Cook Bay. Left from the dinghy dock. You can trolley your grocery till the dinghy dock. Please don’t forget to bring the trolley back!
Supermarket in Vaiare, close to the harbour.


Wifi: Pizzeria, north of the Cook Bay


Cook Bay: deep bay inside the land on the north side, calm water. At the end, you have a dinghy dock. Spectacular scenery.

Car rental, fuel dock on the east side of the bay. The juicer Rotui can be visited (north-west of the bay).

Trekking to the Belvedère (view point) and the pinaple road can be started from there.

 


Opunohu Bay: deep bay inside the land on the north side, calm water. This is where Captain Cook anchored! Some scenery from the Bounty movie was taken here. Spectacular scenery.

At the end of the bay it has the only black sand beach of the island.

Trekking to the Belvedère (view point) and the pinaple road can be started from there.


 


Reef side anchorages: it has several nice anchorage fields near the passes of these two big bays. It’s often crowded.
