French Polynesia is as close as it gets to "Heaven on Earth" or, in practical terms a honeymoon destination. Moorea and Bora Bora are probably some of the most beautiful islands in the world, with jagged tall mountain peaks, tropical rainforest, and turquoise shallows. It is a true island paradise. Moorea is a part of the Society Islands. It is the closest island to Tahiti, about 17 kilometres (11 miles) of a short ferry ride from the capital city and the international airport. The name Moorea means "yellow lizard", but another name is "pineapple island" as there are many plantations. The island is volcanic, about 1.5 to 2.5 million years old, and is formed by the sharp edges of the crater that stick above water. That is what makes it especially beautiful - the jagged peaks. This unique beauty and easy commute make it one of the honeymoon hotspots in the world. Protected shallows also allow building overwater bungalows which is not common in other parts of the world, with the exception of Maldives. The footage below is of sunrises and sunsets as they appear from an overwater bungalow on Moorea island.
