Bora Bora Introduction

Defined by its rainforest-covered peaks and translucent turquoise lagoon, there's no doubt that Bora Bora is the South Pacific's leading lady. An acclaimed honeymoon destination, romance comes easy, though the island has plenty to offer those flying solo. Clear, warm waters teeming with brightly coloured fish, inquisitive rays and underwater coral gardens serve up an idyllic backdrop for swimming, snorkelling and paddle boarding. And if you crave a little adventure, parasailing, skydiving and helicopter tours offer a bird's eye view of the tropical paradise below.

Hotels in Bora Bora

Bora Bora may not have a wide selection of discount hotels, but for those willing to splurge luxury means exactly that here. The island's iconic overwater bungalows, often complete with private plunge pools, sun terraces and glass floors offering peek-a-boo views of the marine life, take the number one spot when it comes to accommodation options on the island – and are often complemented by onshore amenities such as full-service spas serving up a tempting array of pampering treatments. If you've got the kids in tow, there's a decent choice of family-friendly options to pick from, too.

Where to stay

Since you'd be hard-pressed to find a Bora Bora hotel that doesn't place you within steps of a white-sand beach, choosing where to stay on the island often comes down to how much seclusion you're craving. Those wanting to completely switch off and enjoy a little me time can often be found heading to the upscale resorts on Motu Tevairoa and Motu Toopua. If you prefer a little more buzz, staying in one of the resorts or hotels on the main island is typically your best bet – particularly if you choose a spot close to Matira Point on the island's southernmost tip.

Things to see

Rising over 700 metres above the lagoon, Mount Otemanu is a must-visit. Although hiking to the summit of this ancient volcano is an option, those who prefer to get there a little quicker can just as easily book a spot on a 4x4 tour. No matter how you plan to get to the top, expect views to die for and some serious fodder for your Instagram feed. Back on ground level, it's worth swinging by the island's main town of Viatape, especially if you plan to treat yourself to some of the area's exquisite black pearl jewellery. If shopping isn't on the agenda enjoying the water most likely will be, and from sailboats to speedboats, there's plenty of options on the table. Several tour companies sell half and full-day tours and it's easy to add extras such as shark feeding to the itinerary if you fancy creating a bespoke adventure.

How to get to Bora Bora

While there are no direct flights to Bora Bora from the UK, several airlines offer routes to Tahiti's Faa'a International Airport, typically via Paris, Los Angeles or both. Once in Tahiti, 50-minute flights to Motu Mute Airport take off around 5 times a day. Overall, you can expect the total travel time to be between 24 and 48 hours. It's a fair trek, but easily forgotten once you're welcomed to the island with fragrant flower lei. Once you've settled in and are ready to explore, one of the best ways to travel in Bora Bora is by bicycle or 2-seater buggy, both available to hire in Viatape.
