A picturesque, tropical oasis in the Pacific; Bora Bora features sweeping coconut tree-lined beaches, shimmering turquoise lagoons, majestic resorts, and soaring, rain forest-covered volcanic peaks.
Visitors to this quintessential Polynesian island enjoy the world-famous Matira Beach, and spectacular vistas from atop Mount Pahia. Tours enable you to view the contrasts between ancient temples such as Aehautai Marae, the ruins of World War II bunkers, and gun emplacements in Taharuu Marae.
Located in the Society Islands of French Polynesia, Bora Bora is reached by a flight to Motu Mute Airport (BOB), situated on a nearby island. From there, a short ferry trip will take you to the harbor town of Vaitape. The town’s one street is lined with pearl shops, boutiques and handcraft shops. A paved road bordering the shoreline links Vaitape with the rest of the island, including Faanui Bay, a former Allied naval base, and nearby Marotetini Marae, the location for the tombs of Bora Bora’s royal family. Travel around the island by bicycle, motor scooter, bus, or taxi.
A haunt of celebrities and honeymooners for generations, tourism is at its peak during the May to October dry season. For swimming, snorkeling and diving, water temperature averages 80 degrees year-round. Although the main languages are French and Polynesian, many residents are also conversant in English.
