Bora Bora

(4.3/5 based on 5,500+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, shopping, beaches
There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world. Sandy "motus" (islets) surround an azure lagoon, and a forest-clad mountain rises from the island's center. Piers of iconic overwater bungalows stretch out into the lagoon, soothing you to sleep with the sound of gently lapping waves. But you don't have to be a canoodling couple to enjoy Bora Bora: plenty of adventures await travelers of all kinds. The lush tropical slopes and valleys full of hibiscus blossom beg to be explored, as do the coral reefs, filled with colorful life. Head out on the surf with thrilling water sports or a leisurely cruise, and browse boutique shops selling Tahitian pearls, perfumes and oils, and hand-carved wooden sculptures. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Bora Bora and add them to your vacation plans using our French Polynesia vacation generator.

Where to stay in Bora Bora

The quintessential Bora Bora experience, a favorite among honeymooning couples, is to stay at a luxury resort, in a thatched bungalow sitting just above the tranquil waves of a turquoise lagoon. Such opulence doesn't come cheap, but shoestring travelers do have other affordable options here. Pensions (family-run boarding houses) offer the best value, making up for any lack of extravagance by leaving you plenty of money to spend exploring the idyllic island. Hotels in Vaitape offer a middle ground between budget-saving pensions and splurging on a resort.
