EXPLORE THE PRISTINE PEARL OF THE PACIFIC

Just six miles long and two miles wide, what Bora Bora might lack in size it makes up for in overwhelming “no-you’re-not-dreaming” natural beauty. To put it accurately, ancient Tahitians called the island “Pora pora mai te pora,” or “created by the gods.”

Bora Bora’s warm waters, lagoons, and bright white sands circle two rainforest-covered, majestic interior peaks—Mount Pahia and Otemanu—which stretch over 2,385 feet skyward. Glance in any direction, from any location, and be treated to perfectly picturesque tropical scenery of lush jungle canopy and aquamarine seas.

For a deep discovery of Bora Bora, be sure to dive in to some of the best snorkeling and scuba in the Pacific and mingle with dolphins, (friendly) sharks and rays, and coral gardens, or take a scenic jet ski cruise through the surrounding islets.

If you’re seeking some retail therapy, shop for brightly-colored Polynesian silk wraps in every style imaginable, or fine jewelry made with rare gems like the dazzling Tahitian black pearl, which the region is famous for.

To refuel, visit one of many laid-back cafes dotting the main island between Vaitape and Matira Beach, where seafood naturally dominates the culinary scene. Poisson cru, a healthy (but delicious) dish of tuna marinated in lime and coconut is a must-try local favorite.
