Stick your toes in the sand while dining on the Sofitel beach on Moorea. Scallop and frog mousseline with lemongrass, a tower of yellowfin tuna and foie gras—chef Guillaume Burlion’s cooking is as glamorous as the atmosphere beneath a glowing, Kahaia-wood pergola and the sommelier pours extraordinary wines.
For a really good time, come on the third Friday of the month, when cabaret performers light up the tent. A roving magician does card tricks. A sax accompanies an aerialist twirling from the rafters. Polynesian dancers sway.
