Bora Bora Vacations
Escape to Bora Bora for the ultimate honeymoon or tropical island tryst. The island is shaped like a giant sombrero and surrounded by sand-fringed islets and a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef. It’s also a popular luxury resort destination where some guest bungalows are perched over the water on stilts. Over-water bungalows are a standard feature of most Bora Bora resorts. The quality of those bungalows ranges from basic accommodations to very luxurious and expensive places to stay.
Things to do in Bora Bora Island
Bora Bora is a major international tourist destination, famous for its aqua-centric luxury resorts. Diving and snorkeling are excellent in the surrounding reefs and hiking trails weave through the palm-studded forests. If you can afford it, hide out here in a luxurious over-the-water bungalow and bask in your good fortune as you fall asleep to the gentle slosh of the sea. The focal point and best asset of this tropical beauty is its ravishing lagoon in technicolor turquoise. Fish, turtles, sharks, and rays swim in the clear waters. At the island’s center rises Mt. Otemanu, a 727m dormant volcano.
