If you are searching for an ideal place for vacations or honeymoon, don’t forget to look for Bora Bora. The scenic beauty this island offers is breathtaking. This island is engulfed by a barrier reef and a lagoon. There are plenty of resorts built here and the island solely relies on tourism to run its economy. You can book the best one for yourself. Bora Bora Lagoon Resort and Spa, Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort and Spa, Le Meredien Bora Bora and Novotel Bora Bora Beach Resort are the ones which are frequently booked by the tourists.
Snorkeling, scuba diving, waterskiing and jet skiing are the essence of Bora Bora. One of the best dive sites here is Tupitipiti Point. Some dive operators also offer shark – feeding dives and manta ray dives. Boat tours are a must here. You can book yourself for an adventure boat tour or romantic boat tour or for pure lagoon excursions. The choice is entirely yours. Another great tourist spot is Matira Beach. It is the most popular public beach of Bora Bora.
At the center of this island lie the remains of an extinct volcano which is divided into two peaks- Mount Pahia and Otemanu. While it is easy to hike on Mount Pahia, the view of Mount Otemanu is to be enjoyed from the base. On the base of Mount Otemanu, you will find remains of US cannon from World War and some antique altars, scattered throughout the place. It is always recommended to have a guide with you as the way up these peaks is confusing.
Bora Bora Lagoonarium is an exquisite and natural aquarium and is appreciated by all the tourists. One thing to be kept in mind is that the currents here may be very strong. So you need to be careful. Photography tours are also widely conducted on this island and are highly enjoyed by the tourists.
It always advisable to rent a cycle or a car as public transport is almost non – existent here. The ideal time to visit Bora Bora island is between May to September.
