Bora
click any image below to view image slideshow


Bora Bora is one of the magical islands that make up French Polynesia in the South Pacific. Just 18 miles long, this lush little slipper of land lies in a protected lagoon edged by fine white sandy shores the best located at Matira Point.

There are a number of reasons why Bora Bora boasts the nickname "the Romantic Island," including the secluded beaches, intimate hotels and quiet atmosphere that embraces visitors. But don't confuse candle-lit serenity with boredom there are plenty of activities for adventure-seekers, such as joining other fearless visitors on a shark-feeding expedition on the lagoon or a half-day Jeep tour through the island's rough interior. The hunt for the perfect black pearl may take devoted shoppers on a chase through town and back to the main island of Tahiti.

History buffs will find a wealth of World War II memorabilia from the days when Bora Bora served as a refueling base for American troops. A coastal defense gun installment is visible from Matira Point and a driving tour around the island uncovers military landmarks and hotspots from the old days.

Everyone will enjoy the most popular activity of all: lazing the day away on a secluded stretch of Matira Beach and watching a brilliant sunset over the bright turquoise water.
