It cost $75 for the day and only standard/manual transmission was available. The pick-up was 25 minutes late, but they gave us a free upgrade to an A/C car. We drove up to Belvedere Point for a great view of the mountains of Moorea. We also stopped at the Agricultural College on the way down for some great ice cream (with interesting unique flavours) and some jars of jam as souvenirs. The Marae (traditional Polynesian sacred site) called Marae Titiroa is also on the way to Belvedere.
Continuing our drive around the island, we stopped at Les Tipaniers for some swimming. This is the highest recommended ‘budget’ hotel on the island, and from what we saw, rightfully so. (It was full when I tried to book it 3 months in advance). The beach, while not huge, is definitely one of the better ones on Moorea. It faces some motus we tried to swim to (the Lonely Planet recommends this), but the current was really strong, and the water too deep to walk. However, the water is beautiful and clear, and the current immediately in front of the hotel is not strong. Thanks for letting us use your beach, Les Tipaniers!
We did a little bit of pearl shopping, and continued driving around the island, stopping for lots of photos and some grocery shopping at Champion close to the port.
