Bora Bora Best Island in the World

Bora Bora, located in the Islands of Tahiti, was recently ranked the "#1 Island in the World" by venerable news magazine U.S. News & World Report.

The ranking notes, "The very definition of a tropical getaway, blissful Bora Bora abounds with luxurious resorts, sunny skies, warm waters, and friendly locals."
 U.S. News & World Report prefaces the rankings by asking, "What is it about an island that immediately invokes a daydream? That feeling of seclusion, for sure, but also those sprawling beaches, those rolling waves, and those untouched pockets of wilderness. For an island to be considered one of the 'best,' it must have that je ne sais quoi -that magical spark. The islands listed here boast a little extra something that keeps travelers enchanted."
 Bora Bora, known as the "The Romantic Island," is often called the most beautiful island in the world. The tiny island – just 18 miles in circumference – is encircled by a protective necklace of coral. Lush mountains provide a dramatic backdrop for the indescribable turquoise, lapis and aquamarine of the sheltered lagoon.
Arriving by air is a unique experience, landing on the airstrip that was built by U.S. troops during World War II. The runway is on a motu (small islet), and visitors must travel by boat to reach the main island. It's no surprise that most of the island's activities center in and around Bora Bora's spectacular lagoon.

The popular shark-feeding excursion puts visitors in the water and within safe view of reef sharks as they're being fed by guides. Additionally, visitors can enjoy the Lagoonarium, a marine exhibit in the lagoon where the adventurous can swim with sting rays, manta rays, huge sea turtles and reef sharks. Bora Bora is home to world-class resorts and quaint French-inspired restaurants, and is known for its jet-setting celebrity visitors who relax anonymously on its secluded beaches.

Bora Bora Pictures

Bora Bora is perhaps the closest we’ll get to Heaven on Earth. Located about 260 kilometers (160 miles) northwest of Tahiti, Bora Bora is part of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France claimed in 1843.

With a land area of 44 sq km (16.9 sq miles) and a population under 10,000, Bora Bora’s economy is entirely driven by tourism. Distinguished by the most incredible blue lagoon ever seen, the flow of tourists from around the world will likely never cease.

Volcanic in origin, Bora Bora’s rugged main island (and smaller surrounding islands) are completely draped in coral reefs, further enhancing the mystique of this magical place. Below you will find 25 stunning photographs of Bora Bora. Visiting French Polynesia in my lifetime is now a goal I plan on achieving!
