Steeped in romance and heavenly vistas, Bora Bora is the prize jewel in the French Polynesian crown. Located just northwest of Tahiti, this small island is easily accessible but feels miles away from civilization. Relax in the lagoon surrounding the small island, explore the main village of Vaitape, or have an adventure into the mountains and visit the remnants of an extinct volcano. On Bora Bora, you can be as active or inactive as you wish.
Relax in one of the resorts’ world-famous over-water bungalows or take a dive in the protected lagoon that surrounds the island. Have an up-close and personal exploration of the incredible variety of marine life living just below the surface of the crystal clear waters. Lean over the edge of your bungalow and say hello, or dive beneath the surface and come face to face with sharks, sea turtles, manta rays, and nearly 500 species of tropical, colorful fish.
Many of the attractions on Bora Bora are centered around the water, though there are a number of land activities to be enjoyed. Take an excursion inland and visit Mount Pahia or Mount Otemanu by Jeep, tour the main village for a unique cultural experience, or explore the remnants of the U.S. WWII base that was once located on the island.
Whatever you choose to do on Bora Bora, you are bound to have a gloriously lovely experience. With beautiful weather, waters that seem like perfection, and an abundance of charm, Bora Bora is an ideal getaway destination.
