Moorea, about 10 miles in width from the west to the east, is an high island in French Polynesia, one of the Windward Islands, part of the Society Islands, 11 miles northwest of Tahiti. Several ferries go to the Vaiare wharf in Moorea daily from Papeete, the Tahitian capital. There is one road that goes around the island. Along the road are kilometre markers from 1 (airport) to 35 (Haapiti). There are two bays called Opunohu Bay and Cook's Bay. The highest point is near the center of Moorea.
