Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora

(440+ reviews on the web)
Volcano
Head up to the base of Mount Otemanu, an impressive natural monument whose volcanic rock peak marks the highest point on Bora Bora. While the brittle, jagged, 727 m (2,385 ft) summit is too inhospitable to be accessed, you can hike or take a 4x4 trip up to the base of the mountain. The latter option remains the most popular, because of the jungle's density and the difficulty of the walk. Look up at the black, rugged top of the mountain (visible across the island) as it stands in sharp contrast to the lush greens and bright blues of most of the landscape. Put Mount Otemanu on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bora Bora itinerary builder.

  • Loved our tour and got a great view. We also stopped and saw ancient temples and a distillery that made pineapple champagne  more »
  • I spent 5 nights at the St Regis with a lagoon view and 2 nights at the Sofitel Private Island with a Mt Otemanu view. I would definitely pay extra for the Mt Otemanu view next time I'm in Bora Bora.  more »
