This delicious South Polynesian island is the crème de la crème of holiday destinations and every moment will be dripping with pure unadulterated luxury and breathtaking beauty.
Surrounded by turquoise waters, top 5-star hotels and tropical sultry summer days, Bora Bora is the paradise island you have long been dreaming of. You can enjoy a spot of snorkelling, waterskiing, or even take a Jeep tour across the island. Those who want to forget about modern day cares can simply sit back with a good book and fruity cocktail and enjoy island life at its best.
Beaches in Bora Bora
The tiny island of Bora Bora may only be 29 kilometres long but that means you get 29 kilometres of the world-famous beaches at your disposal. Fringed with white sandy shores, gentle lapping crystal-clear waters and thatched tiki huts, there is nowhere in the world that compares with the beauty of a Bora Bora beach holiday. Matira Beach is a dream come true, where pearly white sands slip into a soft lagoon of warm and welcoming azure waters. During the low tide you can wade out to the barrier reef.
Bora Bora holidays are geared towards utter bliss and harmony. With 5-star accommodation at every turn you can make great use of the resort facilities or while away the hours lazing on the sands with a good book in hand. However, the jewel of Polynesia has plenty on offer for those who want to get up and go. One of the best things to do in Bora Bora is to swim with the black reef sharks and the beautiful lemon sharks that like to circle the lagoons.
What to do
If you want to leave the pristine waters behind and explore the island on land then take a 4x4 tour of the glittering green landscape. You can discover the locals trying to spear coconuts from the swaying palms, head close to the rising spires of the islands mountains and breathe in breathtaking views of Bora Bora laid out beneath your feet.
At the end of the long hot day those with an appetite should make sure they swing by Bora Bora’s hottest restaurant - Bloody Mary’s - and choose from a selection of fresh seafood and delicious cuts of meat. This is one of the best places to sample true Polynesian food at its best.
