Thought by most people who visit it
to be the most romantic place in the world, Bora Bora lies just a
short 45 minutes flight northwest of Tahiti. The main Island is in
the centre of a magnificent multi-coloured lagoon, surrounded by a
necklace of coral reefs that visitors can explore either by boat
trips, snorkelling or scuba diving.
There is only one navigable sea
pass into the lagoon, just north of Motu Tapu Island. If you elect
to transfer by sea from Tahiti, then you will experience a truly
magnificent arrival. A must is to drive or cycle the 18 mile road
that circles the island, passing through unspoilt, colourful
villages steeped in Polynesian history and view the Islanders
living a lifestyle that has barely changed for hundreds of years.
During the journey you will experience the vista of the beautiful
Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu and see how its presence provides a
stunning backdrop to the island's white sand beaches.
The hotels provide traditional
entertainment, with some of the finest restaurants you will find in
the Pacific, catering for most tastes including Chinese
and Mexican! But a culinary experience that is a must is the
traditional Tahitian Tamaara'a feast, which is cooked in the
ancient way using an underground stone oven. Sightseeing
options vary from a relaxing ride in a glass bottom boat, the
airborne excitement of a helicopter ride or, the ultimate
excursion, feeding the sharks whilst you're in the water with
Many of the main larger resorts
have their own photographers, and many offer a professional photo
shoot, with options around the resorts, in and under the lagoon,
and the beautiful scenery of the area. You get to take home
100-200 fully edited photos to remember your trip.
Whatever your motivation is to
visit Bora Bora, one thing is for sure, you will fall in love with
this beautiful emerald jewel of the turquoise Pacific.
