Moorea is a stunning jewel of jagged peaks, rising majestically from
a sapphire sea. Completely encircled by coral reef, the island was
originally a volcano whose caldera has eroded over time, allowing
the sea to flow deep into the interior to create Opunohu Bay and Cook's
Bay. Life-style is slower than on Tahiti. Most hotels are located
near the bays on the dreamatic northern side of the island.
