Bora Bora is dark, but you can see the Milkyway sparkling across the sky.
Make sure you look for the stars in Bora Bora.

Bora Bora is one of the smaller atolls of French Polynesia, lying 230 kilometers northwest of Tahiti, but is perhaps the most iconic. A postcard-perfect paradise awaits you on a trip to Bora Bora. The tumbling emerald hillsides of its main island and its surrounding coral reefs stay forever etched in your mind.

Bora Bora’s glossy coastline is renowned for being pristine, its west side embodying a sweeping lagoon teeming with life. Its beaches are world-famous, accommodating thrilling water sports and morning sun-soaking. Swim alongside sharks and sting rays before drying off with a cosmo beneath the beating South Pacific sun.

More than just a beach paradise, Bora Bora centers on an imposing dormant volcano named Mount Otemanu. Awe-inspiring hiking opportunities await you, bringing alluring panoramas of the island’s twinkling ocean surroundings. Scenic walks along Bora Bora’s hillsides marry perfectly with its charming tourist attractions, which embody the island’s impressive cultural diversity. You uncover an ideal balance of discovery and relaxation during a trip to Bora Bora island.
