I spent last winter there and was on Moorea Island when storm "Oli" came through. Although Bora Bora got a more dammage none of the sailboats at anchor at Moorea were harmed. Bora Bora is WAY overrated. Yes it looks just like the photo's but the island itself is not as it might seem. There is trash and garbage tossed about and its very very expensive. Just to stand there and smell the sea air seems to cost money. Right next to Bora Bora is Huahine island. There you can get away from the club med. types and have room to explore. But Moorea is the place. Honestly Moorea has nice anchorages, wonderful diving and swimming with many small village stores found along the road that circles the whole island. For a small fee there is a high speed ferry that runs between Moorea and Tahiti. Tahiti has much lower cost supplies. Other wonderful places are the atolls Rangiroa, Mataiva, Tetiaroa, Raiatea and Tahaa. Your goin' to love French Polynesia.
