Never heard of Moorea? Well then, start looking for your passport right now, as you’re about to book the first flight out to this chic, butterfly-shaped island in French Polynesia.

Picture Tahitian women slicing pineapples in the shade of a hibiscus tree as fishermen paddle back to shore with the catch of the day. Imagine yourself surfing perfect waves, snorkelling in calm lagoons, diving with manta rays, or swimming with dolphins and whales. Ooh là là! But wait, we haven’t even mentioned Moorea's overwater bungalows and epic inland adventures yet. Better get that passport tout de suite!
