Aptly nicknamed “the Pearl of the Pacific”, the island of Bora Bora lies just northwest of Tahiti, less than an hour by air from Papeete. Prepare to be enthralled even before touchdown, with sweeping views of the turquoise lagoon and the iconic Mount Otemanu. On the island, expect lush greenery, white sand beaches, and an array of beachfront resorts with luxurious overwater bungalows. The crystal-clear lagoon, the exotic underwater wilderness, and even Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu are yours to explore! Adventure beckons in the form of diving, paddle boarding, jet skiing, shark and ray feeding, or flying over the island on a seaplane. Don’t forget to venture out to the main village of Vaitape, shop at the local boutiques, or dine at one of Bora Bora’s restaurants including the legendary Bloody Mary’s.
