Moorea Sights

Painapo Beach Paradise

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

This lovely area, with great lagoon views, is not a public beach: it costs 2,000 CFP for a day pass, which allows you to snorkel along an underwater marked trail, meet friendly rays, and watch a breadfruit cooking and coconut gathering show. Thursday is Polynesian day with dances and a traditional sports and craft exhibition and a Tahitian earth oven feast. You can't miss this place as a huge wooden statue of a Tahitian warrior marks the entrance. Meals are available at the restaurant.
