is the best public beach on the island of Moorea
in French Polynesia. The beach is long, with palms and white sand, as well as with toilets and showers. In some places, the water edge is stony, but just a few meters further, there is a sandy bottom again. The snorkeling is good closer to the home reef (200 m from the coastline), which also protects the beach from strong waves. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.  Find hotels in Temae
In the west end of the beach, there is a 5-star Sofitel resort
with room's rates starting from US$450 per night. In the surrounding area, there are also several other hotels - both relatively cheap, as well as very expensive options. Find hotels in Temae
How to get there 
Fly to Tahiti International Airport (PPT)
. Next fly to Moorea airport (MOZ)
or take a ferry
(50 minutes per way, US$15).
Despite the small distance between Tahiti and Moorea, a flight still makes sense, as the water is often choppy in the channel.
From airport to the beach, it is possible to walk in 5-10 minutes. While from the port of Vaiare, you'll have to walk about half an hour, or get by taxi, which is very expensive in Moorea. Find flights to Temae
