It’s Bora Bora’s number one asset. Bright emerald green, suffused with every imaginable shade of blue, the lagoon of Bora Bora is without doubt the most beautiful in the world. So naturally, the best way to begin your stay is with an excursion on these crystal clear turquoise waters. A boat trip around the main island will help you get your bearings and you can admire Mount Otemanu, which at 727 meters, is the island’s highest peak. You will also pass some of the many motu, where you can stop to go snorkeling and discover the richness of the lagoon’s marine fauna and flora. By the end of the day, your head will already be filled with picture-postcard souvenirs of the Pearl of the Pacific.
