Why go to Bora Bora

Palm trees swaying above white-sand beaches. Overwater bungalows perched atop the bluest water you’ve ever seen. A shimmering lagoon dotted with tiny tropical islets. Rarely does a place live up to the hype like Bora Bora.

Adrift in the South Pacific, northwest of Tahiti, Bora Bora’s tiny archipelago makes up part of French Polynesia, a little corner of the world where exotic beauty comes as standard. Even here, Bora Bora has the last word on perfection: a ring of atolls surrounds its idyllic lagoon, while twin mountain peaks blanketed by jungle, rise abruptly from the main island at its centre.

Its waters, teeming with tropical fish, manta rays and sharks, draw scuba divers, while newlyweds flock to its luxury resorts for their honeymoon. In between, travellers paddle in its shallow lagoon, laze on dreamy beaches, and spend their days blissed out by Bora Bora’s chilled island aura.
