Temae Beach

Find your own patch of paradise at this spacious public beach with soft, white sands and a fringing reef to explore with your snorkel and mask.

Temae Beach is a wide stretch of sandy shore on the east coast. The public-access beach is one of the island’s most popular, but there’s enough space to ensure you can find your own idyll. Join the revelers that crowd the sands on the weekend or treat yourself to a tranquil snorkeling session amid the beach’s offshore reefs.

To the north of the coastline, you’ll find the public section of Temae Beach. Wander along the shoreline and find a patch of sand to lay down your towel. Bask in the sunshine or pick a spot beneath the shade of the tropical almond trees. These shady areas make the beach a popular choice for families. Look out across the sweeping arc of the beach to see the backdrop of rolling hillsides.

Cool off with a refreshing swim in the clear waters. Be sure to bring reef shoes to wear when stepping over the jagged sections of coral that can be found along this beach. In the water, you might spot tropical fish and stingrays gliding gracefully along the sea floor. Get a closer look at these marine creatures with your snorkel and mask.

Stroll south to reach the section that belongs to the Sofitel Ia Ora Moorea Beach Resort. Resort guests can stretch out on the private strip of sand and gain easy access to the magnificent reefs that lie just offshore from the lagoon.

Temae Beach is located on the northern section of Moorea’s east coast. It stretches between Teavaro and the airport. Reach the beach by car or scooter, or join a tour that includes the beach on its itinerary. Be aware that the road to the foreshore is not paved and may be best suited to four-wheel drive and all-terrain vehicles. Leave your car at the foreshore parking lot and take your valuables with you. The beach is free to visit at any time of the day. During weekends, the northerly section of the beach can become crowded. The beach has no amenities, unless you are a guest of the Sofitel.
