What to do in Bora Bora

Exploring the Pearl of the Pacific

A symphony in blue…

A lagoon painted in endless shades of blue just waiting to be explored. Bask in it, bathe in it, swim in it, dive in it. And then, if you feel like a change, take a look around the island. You can do it in a variety of ways: on foot, by bike, by quad, in a helicopter…!

Something for everyone

On land and at sea

Naturally, the lagoon is the main attraction of Bora Bora. After all, it is reputed to be the most beautiful in the world. There are a host of ways to spend your day at the beach: swimming at Matira Beach, scuba diving, a picnic on the motu, a sunset cruise, paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing. The choice is endless.

But there are also plenty of things to do on the island itself. Take a stroll around the tiny capital, Vaitape, where you can enjoy a delicious poisson cru in one of the snack bars or restaurants. Go hiking – some of the trails, like those to Mount Pa’ia and  Mount ‘Otemanu, are quite challenging. Discover the vestiges of Operation Bobcat, the American military occupation of the island during WW2. And when you feel like relaxing, enjoy the singular pleasure of a taurumi, the traditional Polynesian massage, in one of the hotel spas.
