Dreaming of a vacation in Bora Bora?

Bora Bora holds such mystery and beauty that for many people it remains a dream. 

A mythical place, too fairytale-like to really exist. But paradise is here on earth and it is more beautiful than the postcards!

Romantic resorts make Bora Bora even more alluring. Thatched-roof villas and over-water bungalows, nestled along stunning beaches, offer luxury in paradise. White sand beaches surrounding the lagoon welcome you into warm water to swim and explore with your snorkel for hours. Warm sunshine and tropical scents lull you into island relaxation.


There is something for everyone in Bora Bora!

For a change of pace, paddle through the sheltered, shallow water. Or scoot across the enchanting lagoon on a jet ski.

Or enjoy a boat tour around the island and feast your eyes on the changing shape of Mt Otemanu. To enjoy a taste of islander hospitality, select one that offers a motu picnic. 

Want to explore the inner savage island? Ride to it's center in a 4WD and hike into the Forbidden Valley of the Kings.


This is the perfect place to do nothing.

  • Bathe in the Tahitian sunshine.
  • Linger over fine dining in restaurants overlooking the ever-fascinating lagoon.
  • Eat with locals at beach-side roulettes to savor the Polynesian spirit.
  • Lovers can shop for exotic black pearls and take a memory of the island's beauty back home with them.
  • At sunset, relax and sip coconut lime cocktails.

Bora Bora is the perfect tropical island holiday or honeymoon vacation. The ultimate setting for a romantic wedding abroad. You can do as much or as little as you want...while soaking up the ambiance of the most beautiful island in the world. It's on many people's 'wish list'. You deserve to see it once. But be aware! Some who venture here find themselves returning again and again.

Yes, this distant isle remains a slice of true South Pacific.

Lush vegetation and fragrant, tropical flowers adorn valleys and hillsides. Locals set up small roadside stalls to sell tropical fruits and the (fish) catch of the day. It contrasts with other more familiar island destinations that bustle with crowds and high-rise development.

I found Paradise and it's beauty keeps calling me back.
