Your guide to Bora-Bora
All About Bora-Bora
Often called the Jewel of the South Seas, Bora-Bora is a tropical gem northwest of Tahiti. Only 15 square miles in size, the formerly volcanic island is famous for its palm trees and the cerulean lagoon. Bora-Bora possesses a calming beauty that draws visitors from around the world looking to unwind and recharge. Unsurprisingly, it’s a top destination for honeymooners and those looking to celebrate their anniversary. Snorkeling, scuba diving, and exploring the pristine coral reefs that call this petite island home are just a few of the highlights of the island. Whether on land, in the sea, or soaring through the sky, there are many different ways to enjoy the natural beauty and bounty of Bora-Bora.
How do I get around Bora-Bora?
Boats are the main form of transportation in Bora-Bora. The Bora-Bora Airport (BOB) has a complimentary shuttle boat to and from Vaitape, the largest city on the island. A more affordable and luxurious alternative is to book a private transfer to your accommodations. Taxis and bus service (known as le Truck) also exist. One of the best ways to get around the island is via cycling. Bikes can be rented in many locations, and seeing the area on bike is an experience in itself. Limited rental cars are also available and scooters are another great way to quickly traverse the roads. For a more scenic trip around Bora-Bora, consider signing up for a helicopter tour around the region. After take-off, you’ll experience a 20-minute guided tour from the sky as you pass over the lagoons and bungalows that dot the landscape.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Bora-Bora?
The best time to consider houses in Bora-Bora is during November and April. Shoulder seasons offer warm weather while largely being free of rain. Some events to look out for include the Tahiti Pearl Regatta in May, a sailing race, between the islands of Raiatea, Bora-Bora, Huahine, and Taha'a, with participants coming from as far away as Hawaii to participate. Also, watch out for the Heiva I Bora-Bora Festival, the island’s largest festival, held in July or August. It is a celebration of life that showcases traditional Polynesian costumes, skills, and music, although it was formerly a ritual used to prepare for war. The Bora-Bora Liquid Festival in December is an athletic competition which features contestants competing in the lagoon and often accompanied by many beach celebrations.
What are the top things to do in Bora-Bora?
Mount Otemanu is one of two peaks remaining of the extinct volcano in the center of Bora-Bora. Rising almost 2,400 feet over the lagoon, a visit to the island isn’t complete without a trip to the top of this mountain to take in the sights. If hiking isn’t your thing, never fear — there are many ways to experience Mount Otemanu, from four-wheel drives and boat tours to guided helicopter rides or walking along the beach.
One of Bora-Bora’s many breathtaking beaches, Matira Beach stands out for its coastal shops and eateries, incredible sunsets, and its sapphire blue water. Fun things to do during your time at the beach include snorkeling, sun-bathing on the crisp white sands, and wading across the shallows to Matira Point and the nearby barrier reef during low tide.
Stand-up paddleboarding is one of Bora-Bora’s longest-running pastimes. Many businesses offer paddle-board rentals, and it’s a great way to explore the lagoons and shallow reefs of Bora-Bora while getting some exercise. The island’s waters are usually calm, perfect for beginner paddlers.
