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.
Divers plunge into crystal clear depths with graceful sharks and manta rays. Snorkellers swim and spy on tropical fish in the coral gardens.
Try parasailing, and marvel as the water melds from aqua, to azure, to sapphire blue.
Cycle the island circle road enjoying the fragrance of frangipani.
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 centre in a 4WD and hike into the Forbidden Valley of the Kings.This is the perfect place to do nothing.

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