Bora Bora Black Pearls

Bora Bora Black Pearls, Souvenirs from bora bora

Bora Bora Black Pearls, Commonly known around the world as black pearls, the pearls of Tahiti are indigenous to the remote lagoons of French Polynesia in the South Pacific.

Legend has it that the pearl oyster, Te Ufi was offered to man by Oro, the god of peace and fertility, who came down to earth on a rainbow. Some say that Oro offered the pearl front this oyster to the beautiful princess of Bora Bora as a sign of his eternal love.

Souvenirs from bora bora, The scientific term for Te Ufi left is Pinctada margaritifera, most commonly known as the black lipped oyster. In the 19th century, its shell, like that of many oysters, was in great demand by the European button industry. As a result, commercial shell harvesting operations by local and foreign entities took place annually in the lagoons of Tuamotu and Gambier, two of the five archipelagoes that make up French Polynesia.

In the days of such lucrative shell harvesting, one would have to open more than 15,000 oysters before finding a natural pearl.

So even before the secret of pearl cultivation was discovere

The most famous of these natural black pearls was called "Azra". It was the centerpiece of a necklace that was part of the Russian crown jewels.

The Quality of Tahitian Pearls

At the producers' stage, quality evaluation is based solely on size, shape and quality. However, when Tahitian cultured pearls enter the wholesale trade pipeline further evaluation and pricing will be based on the demand of the consumer, the rarity of the size, shape and color of the pearl and the final destination of the pearl.

Generally large, rounder pearls which exhibit a high luster with few flaws will still command the most premium prices. In addition, special pearl colors such as peacock, aubergine and pistachio will carry a premium price because of their rarity.
d, the Tahitian pearl had earned a reputation for value and rarity. This reputation was further enhanced by its use in the jewelry of the world's royalty and nobility. Soon the Tahitian pearl became known as the "pearl of queens and queen of pearls".

Villa Mahana - arguably the best food on the Island. Located in a private villa, the ambiance is beautiful and romantic. There are five tables on the main level, and two tables up a few stairs that get reserved early. Your host, Chef Damien Rinaldi, creates a warm and inviting atmosphere serving outstanding French cuisine with Asian and Polynesian influences. The restaurant features ala carte dining, as well as, two prixe fix menus nightly. We highly recommend the "Discovery Menu" where you will have the opportunity to indulge in all of his latest creations. Save this restaurant experience for your last night in Bora Bora, as once you have dined here, nothing else can compare.
All the resorts have excellent restaurants offering great views and upscale gourmet fare.  It's well worth trying other resorts dinner options.  We recommend the restaurant at the St Regis, the Intercontinental Thalasso, the Four Seasons or the Intercontinental Le Moana.  Ask your front desk to make reservations for you.

Bora Bora island vacation

Bora Bora island vacation,Bora Bora island vacation packages,Bora Bora island vacations all inclusive

Bora Bora island vacation - So much has been written and yet it is hard to find the right words to describe the magic that emanates from this island. The most mythical of the Pacific islands, Bora Bora remains the island of all reveries and dreams.

Seen from the air, it has been compared to "a tiny emerald in a setting of turquoise, encircled by a sheltering necklace of sparkling pearls".

Bora Bora island vacation packages - The airport for Bora Bora, built by US forces in 1942, is located on a lush, palm fringed motu about 20 minutes by boat from the main village of Vaitape. Another remenant of the US presence are 2 large cannons hidden in the green hills overlooking the lagoon.

Bora Bora island vacations all inclusive - The view of the main island from the airport is truly breathtaking, and as you travel across the spectacular lagoon, you will soon understand why it is the main area of attraction for all who come here.

Bora Bora itself is rather small and can be traveled by car in about an hour.

The lagoon is 3 times the size of the land mass and offers an amazing range of hues of blue and turquoise as you navigate its pure, transparent waters.

Most of the temples (Marae) were destroyed during the last century by the English missionaries, and unfortunately, there are few archeological features left.

To the southeast of the island is the Coral Garden, a natural underwater park where you will find a spellbinding world of fish and coral.

And off Point Matira you will visit waters where the huge and graceful manta rays congregate for your viewing pleasure. There are other types of rays such as the beautiful spotted ray and the friendly gray ray which love to be petted during the "ray feeding" excursions.
At the entrance of the pass, the "White Valley" teems with gray sharks and barracudas in a never ending ballet.

Bora Bora offers an terrific selection of activities and excursions for honeymooners and vacationers. One of the most popular is shark feeding, where from chest-deep water, you can see local divers feed by hand 4' to 5' reef sharks or a large group of friendly gray rays. It's a lot of fun and totally safe.

Another favorite Bora Bora excursion is the Circle-The-Lagoon with Motu Picnic. You can also rent a small boat, visit the Lagoonarium near Le Meridien Hotel, and take a 4x4 excursion to dramatic panoramic vistas and the US cannon sites on Mount Otemanu.

Most of the recent hotel/resorts have been built on islands (motu) in the lagoon surrounding Bora Bora.  They generally face into the lagoon and the mountains of Bora Bora and offer privacy, pristine water, and extraordinary views.

Bora Bora was the first ever to offer over-the-water bungalows over 30 years ago, beginning at Hotel Bora Bora.  With a few exceptions, this unique accommodation is still found only in French Polynesia where there are protected lagoons and very even tides.
