Peaceful meadows flanked by pinnacles of emerald green will renew your belief in the majesty of nature, and Mo'orea's bright blue lagoon will bring to life the South Seas idyll of your dreams. Pastel-painted houses, surrounded by gardens of hibiscus and birds of paradise, circle the island in a necklace of happy, simple villages that will elevate your senses and remind you that this is what life is all about. La vie heureuse, as they say in Tahiti, a happy life. One of the most memorable locations in The Islands of Tahiti, Mo'orea's beauty is unforgettable.Many artists live on the island of Mo'orea.
