Moorea Real Estate

Motu FareoneMotu Fareone near Tiahura, off the northwest tip of Moorea Island in French Polynesia, is currently advertised for sale as "Fantasy Island" on LuxuryRealEstate.com. The asking price for a third of this scenic motu, including three simple but lovely thatched cottages, is US$1.9 million.

The advantage of Motu Fareone over similar (and more expensive) properties at Bora Bora is that it's easily accessible from Papeete, while sufficiently isolated for nearby resorts on Moorea. The beach here is splendid, and there's excellent snorkeling in the crystal clear waters. Tour operators often bring their clients to this area to swim with giant manta rays. Yachts can anchor off Pointe Tehau, the long fingertip of the motu. If was a multi-millionaire, I'd buy it in an instant.
