Of all the islands around the world, Bora Bora is indeed the jewel of them all. Bora Bora is classified as the South Pacific’s Polynesian-Leading Lady. Honeymooners dream of having their romantic getaway there, many persons save for many years to visit on vacation as a second honeymoon, and couples very much in love will go there to cement their relationship.

Bora Bora and its Origin

Bora Bora is a volcanic formation created in the South Pacific over seven million years ago. It is such a tiny island, with an incredible and vast amount of beauty which stuns visitors. The island is 11 square miles and has two dormant volcanoes in the centre, Mount Pahia, and Mount Otemanu. Population on Bora Bora is 8,800 people.

Tahiti, which is better known, is at its northwest point. Transportation to the island is by boat, but you have to travel by plane to Motu Mete and then be transported by boat from there.

What to do on Bora Bora

Because it is a romantic getaway, and because of the beauty of the island, your experience will be one of being in another world, cut off from civilization, and cocooned in bliss and comfort. You can be lazy as the atmosphere affords, or you can enjoy the many activities. While being lazy you can experience a relaxing yet invigorating spa treatment while enjoying the edible treats offered by room service. There is no need for you to venture far, as is done for you in your bungalow.

If you are an adventurer, activities are there for you to enjoy galore! You have:

  • Island tour by helicopter
  • Shark and stingray feeding
  • Fishing
  • Kite surfing
  • Paddle boarding
  • Jet Skiing
  • Snorkelling
  • Diving
  • Parasailing
  • Skydiving

These water sports are there for you to enjoy, and if you crave more adventure, you can explore the volcanic mountains by going on a Jeep Safari. Boutiques are there for shopping, and restaurants for you to partake of the many succulent and delicious meals, which the Mai Kai Bora Bora and the world re-known Bloody Mary’s offers.

Bora Bora is a unique experience; you will be enamoured of its charms and reluctant to leave. The many experiences enjoyed here will be etched in your memory for a lifetime, while the many pictures you have taken will still not do justice to the awesome beauty of the island. After enjoying Bora Bora, maybe the next destination is Palawan in the Philippines?
