Bora Bora – The View of Tropical Adventure
The island of Bora Bora shimmers like a jewel in the South Pacific Sea. The lagoon glows with indigo hues against a backdrop of emerald trees and basalt mountain peaks. Hibiscuses bloom along the edges of the main town of Vaitape and through the trees of the vibrant jungle. Coconut palms soar above the white sand beaches with large fronds rustling in the sea breeze. As the flight descends into Bora Bora Airport, you can see the jagged and craggy summits of Mount Otemanu and Mount Pahia. The black basalt cliffs protrude from the treetops and shimmer with silver streaks.
Your private transfer greets you upon your arrival at the airport and escorts you across the gorgeous blue lagoon to reach your luxurious resort. Relax in the comforts of your overwater bungalow, listening to the sounds of the water lapping against the wooden posts. The iconic thatched roof swishes in the gentle wind. You find the scent of pineapple blending with the semi-sweet ocean fragrance. The remainder of the day is yours to experience the pleasures of Bora Bora at your leisure. Dig your toes into the hot, white sand of your resort’s private beach. Let the refreshing waters of the lagoon lap against your skin to cool the tropical heat. You can feel the salt crystals forming on your ankles when the water retreats from the shore.
