This was our favorite beach to visit during our stay on Moorea. It was relatively easy to find and not too far from Toatea lookout. once you turn off the main road, it’s a pretty bumpy dirt/rock road.... more »
We stumbled upon this hidden gem of a beach while exploring the island and it became our "go to" place to catch a couple hours of sun, while providing us with views of water so beautiful it doesn't look real! It's a good spot to snorkel, and one day we were rewarded by seeing a migrating humpback breaching in the water just beyond the reef!
Most beautiful beach on the island. Crystal blue water and great snorkeling. This is also one of the only beaches on the island with a big sand beach leading to the water. So if you are looking to lay out or just enjoy a beach day out of the water this is by far the best spot. Located right by the sofitel resort, you use a small access road right below the look out to access the beach.
