We went as part of a tour (FranckyFranck), so had lots of laughs and very good explanation. The jams for tasting were good and we brought one. Good to go to, but if I had missed it I would not have been sad. Like a lot of things was not very well sign posted, so would not have found it... More

Yes Moorea Tropical Garden is all this at the same time: you can either hike up the hill or drive up (scooter be aware that it's quite steep). There are in Papetoai, between the the 2 bays, closer to Opunohu bay though. Nice sotp while going around the island. On weekends, you can have a local lunch (maa tahiti), some... More

Also recommended by locals. We got there driving a scooter and bearly made it up there. The views and the gardens are beautiful. We were lucky to be able to eat there as a group had reserved the place. The food was typically polynesian and was delicious. And the people very very friendly.

Great stop for unique jams and vanilla to take home for souvenirs. Beautiful views of Opunohu Bay...much closer than The belvedere lookout. It's great to see the Polynesians in business here...as we love to support local businesses!

This garden is accessible by car on a very rocky and difficult road, be prepared for some "sporty" driving. Alternately you can go by walk but it would take you at least 30-45min one-way. When we arrived the place was completely empty except a very old lady in a small shop. She was outstanding and very nice with us, she... More

Myself and my partner popped here mid afternoon and loved it so much for it's views and surroundings that we came back in the evening for the sunset alone! The lady who runs this place is very informative, sweet, charming, knowledgeable, and helpful and she sells her lovely homemade jams here - in some flavours you could only dream of!... More

Up a really steep drive, but worth the walk or drive. We visited on a Saturday but were lucky to get a lunch as it is normally only available on Fridays. Amazing value for a sampler plate of local cuisine such as MahiMahi, tapioca, taro, coconut bread, chicken done in banana leaves, poisson Cru and also a large fresh fruit... More

We actually ate here two Fridays in a row - that's how much I loved it! Very interesting to compare the typical food here with what we eat in Hawaii. You can see vanilla growing in their shade house and they have all sorts of conserves for sale. They were so super nice when we showed up the first time... More
