Bora Bora is an island built like a dreamscape. Proud peaks protrude from the jungle terrain with solid, sheer rock. The vibrant colors of indigo, sapphire, and turquoise emanate from the South Pacific Sea and the serene lagoon. Rainforest sweeps across the undulating basalt landscape. Coconut palm trees rustle in the breeze along the coastline, and mango trees thrive in the tropical warmth. Fruit stands on circular roads throughout the island display fresh papayas and pineapples beside bread stands offering delicious banana bread.
Your flight lands at Bora Bora Airport where your private transfer greets you upon your arrival. You make your way across the lagoon for your first view of the white sand beaches and indigo waters up close. The sea splashes over the boat, providing a mist to the cool breeze. You settle into the comforts of your private overwater bungalow, an iconic accommodation for those visiting French Polynesia. Palm trees shade the luxury pool, and you can hear the sea lapping against the wooden posts of your secluded suite offering views of the mountains to the west and the ocean to the east.
Take the time to visit the main town of Vaitape at your preferred pace. The largest town on the island offers a bustling pace compared to the surrounding villages and pristine landscape. The water seems to brush against the shoreline at a slower, more relaxed pace. The market brims with bright produce, from bananas to coconuts, pineapples to lychees. Pearl vendors showcase their precious stones on the upper floor, highlighting how the natural light glints off the polished black or white surface.
