Juts booked the first leg of our Honeymoon - 5 nights in Moorea at the Hilton and 5 in Bora Bora (hotel TBA) - what are the must does we need to do?
We plan on renting a car for a maybe two or three days to explore the island and see the sites. What are our must do's? We have never been to the Pacific before, (I went to Hawaii once in the past). What we like to do? (we are experienced Caribbean travelers)
1. Boat trips (relaxing with a cold drink in hand seeing the site, snorkling, taking a swim - not cattle boat style, but in the 10-20 person size)
2. Live Music
3. Strolling on the beach/taking a lite hike
4. Whale/Dolphin watching (in the natural environment - not the "we keep them in a cage" and fake the experience.
5. I love exploring new foods, doesn't need to be fancy - we love the out of the way "local" places.
From what I read, not a lot to do withing walking distance of the Hilton - hence we will grab a car for a couple of days, stock up with Beer and snacks from a local grocery store and tour the island.
Any restaurant suggestions - not wanting to go crazy over the top, but I have heard some will pick you up - which ones? What are you looking at for a price for two dinners and a drink a apiece?
