Everyone should visit Bora Bora in French Polynesia at least once in their lifetime.
If you dream of crystal clear waters, overwater bungalows, perfect sunsets, interesting sea life, water sports, secluded white sand beaches, shopping for pearls and more – then it’s quite simply the ultimate bucket list destination.
Bora Bora (whose original name in the Tahitian language means first-born) is a dream holiday destination if you’re looking to get away from it all.
The island offers a wide range of experiences and you’ll get plenty of opportunity to recharge your batteries in one of Bora Bora’s renowned thatched-roof bungalows with its glass floors that allow you to glimpse the majestic underwater world with its manta rays and sharks.
5 Things to Explore in Bora Bora
- Mount Otemanu
Mount Otemanu is one of two extinct volcanoes at the centre of the island. This breathtaking mountain rises nearly 730 metres above the lagoon – and serves as the magnificent backdrop to many photos.
- Matira Beach
With its resorts, shops and eateries, Matira Beach is a great place to spend your day. As one of the only public access beaches in Bora Bora, it is very popular with travellers who enjoy the crystal-clear waters and soft white sand.
- Coral Gardens
This stunning coral reef located on a small islet east of the main island is where you’ll discover colourful fish and sea life. You’ll only need some snorkelling goggles to explore as the reef isn’t far below the water.
- Bora Bora Lagoonarium
If you want to get up close and personal with Bora Bora’s marine life, then this natural aquarium located on a small island (motu) east of the main island is the place to be. Snorkel (under the supervision of wildlife guides) and discover turtles, rays, sharks and lots of other brightly coloured ocean fish.
- 4×4 Adventures
If dry land is more your thing then it might just be time to explore the island in a 4-wheel drive. You’ll get to learn plenty of historical and cultural facts along with island legends as you discover breathtaking scenery and the hidden secrets of Bora Bora.
