Magnificent Moorea – the heart of French Polynesia

French Polynesia is one of the dream destinations for most travelers all over the world. It is hard accessible and far in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but with its beauty is a symbol of success and good life. Bora Bora and Tahiti attract even the most pretensions travelers who are looking for five-stars luxury and a bit privacy from the busy daily life and crazy metropolitan cities. One of the best-kept secrets in French Polynesia is actually Moorea – a small island just on the opposite side of Tahiti that could be easily reached by ferry or small plane from Papeete. Moorea is a really calm place and it is known as The Magical Island in French Polynesia.

Oh, and as on of the sailors pointed out: the only island in French Polynesia with an – actual Mcdonalds.
