A close neighbor of Tahiti, the Moorea Island is a peaceful place with a relatively small population. Palm-thatched huts can still be found and outrigger canoes can be spotted along the shore. A road winds lazily around the island and there is always a sailboat anchored in a calm, peaceful bay. By many visitors, Moorea is considered to be a dream destination or even a tropical paradise.

" Toward night we opened the NW point and discovered the island named by Dolphin's people, York and called by the natives Eimayo."
