Visitors to Bora Bora touch down at Bora Bora Airport (BOB), also known as Mote Mute Airport, on an airstrip built by US troops during World War II. The airport is on a motu (islet) complete with sandy beaches and blue waters; this means passengers will need to take a boat to the main island or other islets. If you’re on a luxury holiday package, your hotel will have a private boat waiting for you.

There are no direct flights from the UK to Bora Bora. The shortest route for British travellers involves at least two stopovers – taking a direct flight to Los Angeles, and picking up another flight to Tahiti, before travelling onwards to Bora Bora.

There are about a dozen airlines flying from the UK to Los Angeles, such as British Airways, Air New Zealand, and United Airlines. Flying from Los Angeles to Tahiti is equally easy, with about half a dozen airlines to choose from; Air New Zealand and Qantas often offer some of the cheapest fares. Finally, flying to Bora Bora from Tahiti is a straightforward affair with Air Tahiti, which offers five direct 50-minute flights a day. The total flight time? At least 26 hours 30 minutes.

One piece of good news is you can easily break up the flights by staying in Los Angeles or Tahiti for a few days before your onward journey to Bora Bora.
