More on MooreaMoorea is roughly triangular in shape, and indented on the northern coast by two bays, namely Opunohu Bay and Cook's Bay. The largest commune on Moorea is Paopao. It is at the southern end of Cook's Bay (which as a result, is also often called Paopao Bay). The highest mount on the island is the 1,207-meter (3,960-ft) Mount Tohivea.
