Bora Bora Holiday 2015

A beautiful paradise in the South Pacific, French Polynesia is made up of 118 dispersed islands, each with stunning natural beauty. The most well known of these islands is Tahiti, which is covered by lush forest, as the coastline is lapped by stunning turquoise waters. From surreal waterfalls to volcanic peaks, there is plenty to explore.

World renowned for being a romantic destination, these islands are the ultimate for a relaxing and unique tropical holiday. So, book your ticket and jet off to the sultry islands where you can take it slow in a laid-back atmosphere surrounded by stunning scenery.


La Orana!

The traditional, unprompted Tahitian greeting of “la orana!” is likely to be the first thing you hear once you have stepped off the plane. Meaning simply “hello”, it is your welcome to a unique part of the world. Tahiti tends to be the starting point of any trip to French Polynesia and you will see that the legends of the explorers is true from minute one. Fertile soils and simple lives, this is a dreamy place. Majestic mountains and blue lagoons dot the landscape as you start to live the paradise dream.

To the beach

Most islands boast white-coral sands with the backdrop of coconut palms but there are reefs that surround much of the coastline. This means you have to be careful when swimming. Some of the top beaches include: Temae Plage and Mareto Plage in Moorea, La Plage de Maui in Tahiti and Matira beach in Bora Bora.

Take in the beauty

The French Polynesia islands conjure up visions of islands of beauty and they have two areas that can debate for the mantle of top spot. Moorea is a stunning island, an area where the Mount Rotui rolls down in green all the way to the glorious bays of Opunohu and Cook’s. Bora Bora is an iconic spot that James Michener once said was the most beautiful island in the world.

Off the beaten track

With the islands developing rapidly, you get a modern environment on the most popular spots like Pape’ete but there are some sleepy spots to enjoy an authentic experience in French Polynesia. Huahine is a major island but hasn’t grown to have the pull of some of the other spots and you can find ancient temples to visit.

Elsewhere, Tahaa is like Moorea before the developers came. The main industry is vanilla growing and it is a precious rugged little island worth exploring. Maupiti is yet to get an upscale resort, thanks to resident voting, and the unspoiled spot is a great day trip from Bora Bora. Other undisturbed areas include the Tuamotu archipelago and the Marquesas Islands.

Relaxing in French Polynesia

Thanks to the warm tropical climate of this part of the world, water sports are year round activities. Whether you want to snorkel, dive or surf there are spots in this area that give you the chance to do just that. You can even swim with sharks in Bora Bora.

Hiking trails are popular because of the incredible interior that the islands have but this can only be done during the dry season because the wet can make these walks impassable. If you are there in July then be sure to get yourself to the Heiva Festival in Tahiti where music, dancing and singing take place to bring religion to life.

For a more cultural visit, you can check out the artwork of famous French painter Paul Gauguin who worked on the islands, head to one of the markets to see the hustle and bustle and buy some tropical foodstuffs or handicrafts and learn about the history with a visit to the Museum of Tahiti.

Bora Bora Vacations Planner 2014 Informations

We are planning our Vacations and honeymoon in April 2014. One travel agent recommended that we travel to Pappete - then fly to Raiatea. From Raiatea we take yacht (Tahiti Yacht Charter) from Raiatea to Bora Bora - 3 days - 2 nights (stopping over in Tahaa). In Bora Bora we plan to stay at St. Regis or Four Seasons for five nights - Superior Beach OverWater at FS and OverWater Villa at STRR.

The trip excluding the airfare to Tahiti (but includes local travel) is coming to around $13K. Does this sound like an ok deal?

Bora Bora Paradise, Bora Bora really is the most beautiful island on earth. The perfect Pacific island paradise.
Bora Bora ParadiseBora Bora Paradise

Bora Bora Paradise - is almost entirely dependent on tourism. Over the last few years several resorts have been built on motu (small islands, from Tahitian) surrounding the lagoon. Thirty years ago, Hotel Bora Bora built the first over-the-water bungalows on stilts over the lagoon and today, over-water bungalows are a standard feature of most Bora Bora resorts. The quality of those bungalows ranges from comparably cheap, basic accommodations to very luxurious and expensive places to stay. Most of the tourist destinations are aqua-centric; however it is possible to visit attractions on land such as WWII cannons. Air Tahiti has five or six flights daily to the Bora Bora Airport on Motu Mute from Tahiti (as well as from other islands). The island is served by Bora Bora Airport on Motu Mete in the north, with Air Tahiti providing daily flights to and from Papeete on Tahiti.

Although French and Tahitian are the main languages spoken by the inhabitants, people in contact with tourists generally have some command of English. Most visitors to Bora Bora are American, Japanese, or European.[citation needed] Public transport on the island is non-existent. Rental cars and bicycles are the recommended method of transport. There are also small fun-cars for hire in Vaitape. Snorkeling and scuba diving in and around the lagoon of Bora Bora are popular activities. Many species of sharks and rays inhabit the surrounding body of water. There are a few dive operators on the island offering manta ray dives and also shark-feeding dives.
In addition to the existing islands of Bora Bora (called motu), the new man-made motu of Motu Marfo has been added in the north-eastern corner of the lagoon on the property of the St. Regis Resort.
