Bora Bora – Welcoming French Polynesia
The majesty of Bora Bora emanates from the indigo and turquoise lagoon encircling the white sand beaches. Coconut trees cast slivers of shade over the shores and the emerald rainforest blankets the foothills leading to the twin volcanic peaks of Mount Otemanu and Mount Pahia. The coral shimmers with rainbow hues, matching the tropical colors of the swarming schools of fish. Sailboats glide along the cobalt waters of the South Pacific Sea. The scent of fresh coconut overtakes the fragrant aroma of blossoming hibiscus. Your flight lands at Bora Bora Airport, where your private transfer greets you upon your arrival.
The central market in the main town of Vaitape brims with locals and visitors eager to find the glowing rinds of fresh produce. Guava and passion fruit are displayed in bright pyramids alongside oranges and pineapple. The fish market thrives with fishermen eager to showcase their mahi mahi, tuna, and prawns that they caught earlier that morning. You make your way by private boat across the lagoon to reach the comforts of your five-star resort accommodation. Settle into the iconic majesty of an overwater bungalow where you can listen to the serene waters lap against the sturdy posts of your suite. The sunlight pours through the windows and reflects off the lagoon, guiding your eyes to the glass floor panel offering a view to the fish swimming below.
