Pristine natural beauty blesses every inch of Bora Bora. Palm trees ring the island and sway with the gentle breeze. Warm, bright, cerulean blue ocean waters softly lap against pure white-sand beaches. When you add in majestic Mt Otemanu, an extinct volcano in the center of the island, and you know God certainly took his time perfecting Bora Bora!

Did you know that more people fly into Honolulu, Hawaii during any ten days in July, than go to Bora Bora in a full year? Have you always wanted to be stranded with your lover in paradise?

Fun and Unusual Activities

The watersports are top-notch. When you can snorkel directly off your balcony, there is an added element of intrigue. Indulge in picnics on private uninhabited islands; hike to tops of a volcano; go on a jeep safari in the jungle, or possibly learn a traditional Tahitian dance. I highly recommend the sunset champagne sailing tours. And don't forget to do a little island hopping to get a taste of the nearby islands; they all have a different feel and vibe.
