Turquoise lagoons, soft white sands, and deep tangerine sunsets set the scene for romance on the island so nice they named it twice. Mingle with tropical fish as you flutter around Coral Gardens or Tupitipiti Point, or relax in a self-driving tour as you take in beautiful views of the once-volcanic Mount Otemanu. At the Lagoonarium you can watch shark feedings and swim with turtles. Cap it all off with a succulent meal at one of the island’s fine French restaurants, then sip a tropical cocktail under the stars.
Considered to be one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Bora Bora immediately conjures images of a romantic tropical paradise set in ultimate luxury. Known as ‘the Romantic Island’ Bora Bora is the destination that’s on every couple’s wish list. But there’s lots more to this tiny island than just fancy overwater bungalows. With lush covered peaks rising sharply out of a massive lagoon that’s radiating in the brightest shades of blue – Bora Bora is the stuff dreams are made of. This Bora Bora Travel Guide aims to help you plan that vacation of a lifetime, so let’s head off to paradise.
To be perfectly honest, if you’re an independent traveler not doing the whole resort scene, the main reason to visit Bora Bora is to tick it off your list. Here’s my honest opinion: the island is stunning from a natural perspective! Its lagoon is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen and its volcanic peaks are even more impressive in real life. However, the island lacks the kind of local charm that you’ll find elsewhere in French Polynesia.
