Bora Bora is a stunning South Pacific Island, northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia, with villages surrounded by miles of fine, white sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise water. It is a major tourist destination and is famous for its aqua-centric luxury resorts.
Most resorts on the island feature over-the-water bungalows and the majority of the activities take place outdoors, as there are no cinemas, libraries or museums to visit. Some of these activities include scuba diving and snorkeling, deep sea fishing, jets ski tour, jeep tours, helicopter tours, kiteboarding, enjoying the famous sunset and lots of pampering.
It is a perfect honeymoon destination for couples who are not afraid to ‘break the bank’. This is because Bora Bora is a tremendously pricey destination. Everything on the island ranges from “expensive” to “very expensive”.
