About Bora Bora Island Guide

Since seeing a picture of Bora Bora in a year 7 Geography class, I had been transfixed on visiting this Paradise.  Starting off on a shoestring budget, in my early 20's I was searching for information about Bora Bora. How to get there, where to stay, what to do, how to find the best beach, and how to make this dream come true on a small budget. While there was limited information available about far flung Bora Bora, I managed to piece together how to get there with 3 of my friends.

After that visit I had completely fallen in love. A couple years later I returned as a family trip with my mother. I had to share with her the most beautiful place on earth. Since then we have returned to Bora Bora as often as we can. 

We began sharing information about our Bora Bora vacations in 2011 through this labor of love, to help other people make their dream vacation a reality. 


Nowhere has captured my heart like Bora Bora.

From my first glimpse of the lush, volcanic peak rising from the shimmering, turquoise lagoon, I was captivated. I had been dreaming of the 'pearl of the pacific' for years and it was even more beautiful than I had imagined.

I swam, snorkeled, hiked, cycled, drove and boated to every possible part of the island and it's lagoon.
