Holidays to Bora Bora

Holidays to Bora Bora

Azure waters, ivory sands and thatched huts hovering over the ocean: if this sounds appealing in any way, then it’s time to pack a bag for your luxury holiday or honeymoon to Bora Bora! The lagoon in which the main volcanic island sits is surrounded by smaller islets, with the crystalline seas between them perfect for snorkelling and each secluded bay offering moments of untainted, isolated escape. Kaleidoscopic coral reefs make boat trips and watersports an absolute must, though that is about as active as things get, because the real draw of this idyllic enclave is doing not very much at all in this pristine paradise. Wider French-Polynesian heritage can be tasted through locally inspired dishes or glimpsed during theatrical dance displays and musical performances, which most of Bora Bora’s fine selection of beachfront hotel resorts will regularly display each evening, adding a cultural twist to this haven of otherwise pure relaxation.

Bora Bora Activities

Get active in Bora Bora with warm and coral-rich waters perfect for scenic snorkels, paddle boarding, kayaking or canoeing – most hotels will offer this free of charge. A motu picnic offers the chance to unwind with a Tahitian picnic on a secluded motu (isle) in the lagoon. And for those who want to explore on their own, there are boats for hire so that you can discover the remoter sides of the island. Or splurge and treat yourself to a Polynesian spa day or island helicopter tour. Feeling daring? Sign up for a shark or stingray experience and hand-feed these mysterious creatures in their own habitat. 

Bora Bora Food & Drink

The cuisine in Bora Bora has a touch of French flair – try Poisson Cru, tuna marinated in coconut milk, paired with a Tahiti Drink made out of pineapple, passion fruit and orange juice mixed with vanilla and cane spirit. Experiencing a Tahitian Feast is a must where you’ll dine on local cuisine cooked in a traditional underground oven known as Ahima'a, accompanied by Polynesian dancing. But if you feel like dining outside of your resort, many Bora Bora restaurants will offer free transport from resort to restaurant. Small roadside 'roulottes' also offer authentic Tahitian meals.

Bora Bora Attractions

Bora Bora’s landscape is filled with all sorts of nooks and crannies. Hike the Valley of the Kings with its ancient villages and religious ruins, visit black pearl farms and stay in one of Bora Bora’s famous overwater bungalows. Mt. Otemanu, the island’s most iconic attraction, is worth exploring if you can brave the six hour hike while the lagoonarium offers a milder but no less interesting day of discovery. Hire a boat and cruise at your own pace to find your favourite snorkel spot. Other Bora Bora attractions include Matira Beach, Circle Island Road, and Vaitape - the main village where you can hunt for souvenirs.
