French Polynesia/Moorea: Opunohu & Cook’s Bays

The Moorea island has two magnificent bays – Opunohu and Cook’s. While you can drive along the coastline and view the bays from land, a better and different perspective comes from getting out on the water and seeing the bays while exploring the Moorea Lagoon. Massive mountains stand behind the bays and in between them, including the peak that is featured on all the French Polynesia coins – Mount Tohiea. A luxury Hilton resort sits in between two bays, and all around you are translucent waters of one of the most beautiful lagoons of the world.
