Best Time To Go To Bora Bora?

Bora Bora is stunning even when it's cloudy

"When is the best time to go to Bora Bora?" It's a question we are often asked. The answer depends on what you want to do when you get there.

Vacationing in Bora Bora, at a beautiful resort, you can have a fantasy vacation doing as little or as much as you like. If you just want to relax, it's always the best time to go to Bora Bora. Even when the sky is overcast the famous lagoon shines in iridescent shades of blue. And Mt Otemanu's craggy peak appears extra mysterious when peeping from behind the clouds.

When Bora Bora is at it's sunniest and busiest, in July and August, you still feel like you're in paradise. The actual numbers of tourists coming here aren't large, and the resorts are so expansive. Hawaii gets the same number of tourists in 12 days as Tahiti has in a year.

But many people only have one Tahiti vacation in their lifetime. So if you can choose your vacation date, decide the best time to visit Bora Bora according to what you want to see and do, as well as your budget. We also discuss the best month to go to Bora Bora here.
