Complimentary Intercontinental Thalasso Bora Bora Activities

Much of the magic at this resort is in the over water bungalow. But the beach is very special too, and is the focus of so many things to do at the Intercontinental Thalasso Bora Bora.

Towels and snorkeling equipment are collected from the beach fare (house) and you can change your wet ones as many times as you like, in a day. You will probably find the beach boys to be the friendliest people at the resort.

  • Relax on soft sun-lounges under a pandanas umbrella on the beach.
