Most of the Bora Bora resorts offer a wide range of free activities, usually including the following:
Kayaking and Outrigger Canoes – Go for a paddle off of your resort's beach around the calm lagoon.
Snorkeling – Bring your own snorkeling gear or use the complimentary gear provided at the resorts. Some resorts even have snorkel excursions with a marine biologist who points out marine life on a guided tour.
Paddle Board – These little water craft have become popular and the Bora Bora resorts have been quick to have paddle boards available for guests to use.
Hobbie Cat Cruises – Look out for the colorful sails of the hobbie cats gliding around the lagoon. Most resorts have them and take guests for complimentary rides with a sailor.
Work Out – Have the best view and the purest Pacific Ocean air to breath while you work out in paradise at your resort's gym.
Cultural Activities – These give insights into local life and are always high on our list of free things to do. In Bora Bora many of the resorts offer a different daily activity such as a demonstration on how to tie your pareo or weave a traditional basket. We suggest that on your first day you make a note of the ones you want to join in with, so that you don't miss out.
At the Intercontinental Thalasso a beach boy attracts the sting rays by feeding them each day.
Le Meridien Bora Bora guests are lucky enough to have a large inner lagoon full of tropical fish and turtles on site! Each morning there's a turtle feeding and those who attend are given a fascinating talk. You can also book to swim with the turtles, along-side the Marine Biologist. If you are not a Le Meridien guest but would like to visit the turtles, you can. Contact the resort to organize your trip across the lagoon on the resort's shuttle boat, for a small fee.
