    great website and it seemed like a wonderful experience. We’re going there as a family next week-end. We own a french travel blog on French Polynesia as we live here since 4 years now 🙂

    Hello! My fiancé and I are planning our honeymoon in French Polynesia. I think we have decided we want to go to Moorea but we are struggling to choose between Taha’a and Rangiroa. We love to dive. Any recommendations? I’m nervous that the accommodations on Rangiroa aren’t as nice as Taha’a but the diving seems better in Rangiroa. I guess I’m wondering if it’s significant. Thanks! Kory

      Hey Kory! I think the beauty of French Polynesia is that not everywhere has overwater bungalows or 5-star resorts, so you can actually split your time and get quite a bit in. In the same trip, we did Le Taha’a and Rangiroa and I would totally recommend doing that. You can go to Le Taha’a and super relax, have a romantic time, do a lagoon boat ride, and have a dreamy sunset honeymoon dinner. But diving is not as great there. So if you also want to dive, you should definitely go to Rangiroa — there’s not really a comparison.

      Top Dive is who I went with, and while the accommodation isn’t as luxe, the one hotel we stayed at does have luxury spots.

      When it comes to Mo’orea, it is not the most luxurious. It was fun going with a girlfriend, but nowhere is as epic or romantic as the other islands. BUT, if you’re going to do Mo’orea, maybe start there, then go to Le Taha’a. If you’re on a budget, you could do Rangiroa. If you can’t do all three, I would say Le Taha’a and Rangiroa will be the loveliest and best for a honeymoon.

      That said, unless you’re going during whale season and that’s the specific reason you want to go to Mo’orea, it’s just not the most epic for a honeymoon, in my opinion.

      I hope that helps!
