BORA BORA

One of the most beautiful islands in the world.

Bora Bora is one of the world’s more romantic getaways, blessed with stunning landscapes and a Hollywood setting.  Spend your days enjoying the white sand and clear waters and come the night you can enjoy the island’s tranquility at a small beach-side restaurant.  It is exceptionally gorgeous at night when the stars come out, as well as the music, drinks, and culture. A trip down here is packed full of the summer essentials- jet skiing, diving, snorkeling, relaxing by the beach, and jungle walks. The island is also home to some unique geological landmarks, such as Mount Otemanu, a 2,400-foot volcanic remnant. On Bora Bora you can also find the Turtle Center, which aims to nurture injured or sick turtles back to good health.

TOP THINGS TO DO IN BORA BORA

These are popular activities to do in Bora Bora. We can help you choose.

Boat Tour: Sit back and relax as your crew take you for an exclusive tour of one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world in Bora Bora. From your vessel you’ll be able to spot sharks, stingrays, coral gardens and more while you enjoy some champagne and gourmet dining onboard. With the comfort of the boat and the views of the lagoon, there is not a more tailored experience on the island.

Scuba and Snorkeling: Get up close and personal with the marine life of Bora Bora with a snorkeling or scuba diving tour of the lagoon. Swim past the breathtaking coral landscapes bustling with creatures, or head down deep and immerse yourself in the iconic French Polynesian underwater paradise. Whether you choose to watch from above with a snorkel or enter the wonderland in scuba gear, you’re bound to have a great time.

Mount Otemanu: Mount Otemanu: Head to a lookout point for Mount Otemanu and see the 2,400-foot volcanic remnant in all its glory. Towering over all the lagoons and lathered in a thick luscious forest, the mountain truly is a must-see for visitors on the island.

Matira Beach: On Matira Beach you’ll find the summer kick back spot you’ve been looking for. In the area are a variety of scenic bush walks to do during the day, and some beach-side bars for you to return to in the evening for a drink. With the white sand and clear blue water, Matira Beach is the perfect spot for lazy afternoons in a beach chair, or active mornings on a refreshing walk.

Waterski or Jet ski: If you’re going to zoom your way around a tropical island, Bora Bora is the place to do it. Hit the gas and soar across the waves on your very own waterski or jet-ski with a rental from one of the many local shops. Take waterskiing lessons to perfect your craft or head out and tear it up straight away, the choice is yours.

Submarine Tour: Head underwater and explore the gorgeous lagoon of Bora Bora in a submarine. Your guide will teach you how to pilot your very own submersible, and you’ll be able to enjoy the experience of scuba diving whilst remaining dry and having your guide fill you in on the local ecology and species of fish.

ATV Tour: Hop on an ATV with your friends and family and hit the gas as you snake your way through the dense jungles and across beaches on your very own ATV. This high velocity tour will provide you with insight into the island’s history and ecology from your tour guide, with the addition of a thrilling ride- it’s a great combination. 

Turtle Center: If you head down to the Bora Bora Turtle Center you’ll leave a certified Turtle Expert having been educated by the helpful staff and been up and close with turtles at the facility. All the turtles at the center are there due to sickness or injury, and so the Bora Bora Turtle Center does its part and helps to get them back up and into the water-and you can help too through feeding sessions or presentations.
