Bora Bora is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world and the most famous island in French Polynesia. A-list celebrities and honeymooners flock to this tropical island paradise to immerse themselves in the privacy of the turquoise lagoons, palm tree-speckled beaches and iconic overwater villas that allow guests to dive straight into the coral-filled water below. Boasting some of the world’s most luxurious hotels, Bora Bora truly is a magical destination that many only dream of visiting.
Beyond the bungalows and beachfront cocktails, the beauty about Bora Bora is that visitors can do as much or as little as they want. Famous for its glistening lagoon filled with tropical underwater wildlife, it’s only natural that most of the activities in Bora Bora take place in (or under) the water. Visitors can enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, diving, fishing, paddle boarding, kitesurfing, jet skiing, and even shark and ray feeding.
