The hotel we stayed in was the only one on the motu (Sofitel Motu)one had to take a boat to get to the property. Over water bungalows were beautiful. You never wanted to leave your room. We took a boat over to s little market where we purchased freshly baked bread, cheeses and coconut ice cream for our coffee. Jumping off your own deck into crystal clear water and watching the most glorious sunrises was a highlight of our memories. So much beauty to behold my eyes ached.

WENT AT THE END OF OCTOBER, VERY HOT AND HUMID. IT'S A PLACE WHERE FREEDOM AND SIMPLICITY REIGN SO TAKE SIMPLE AND COMFORTABLE CLOTHES, PREFERABLY COTTON, LINEN, AND LIGHT FABRICS IN GENERAL. THE TEMPERATURE IS HIGH IN THE EVENING, SO WEAR LIGHT CLOTHING THEN AS WELL. DON'T FORGET MOSQUITO SPRAYS (THE ONE YOU CAN BUY ON SITE IS VERY EFFECTIVE)

Don't be discouraged if you arrive to a huge storm, in 5 minutes the sun comes back even hotter. It's beautiful, you must go once in your life!! Pack immediatly, those who can, and ...... Enjoy your trip. PS: it's best to take a waterproof suitcase rather than an umbrella, it will be more useful, and a lot of T-shirts with short sleeves and sandals on your feet. Bye-bye.

September was a good month to go, in terms of price and weather. There were few tourists so we could dive in peace. The resort isn't too crowded, you can go on boat trips that are not too full, there is staff on hand, an unforgettable honeymoon

It's a heavenly unforgettable dream, you must go at least once in your life (if possible, of course) I don't know if I could tear myself away from my current life, but if I could, I would certainly would go here for the rest of my life! I think being there as a couple would be the best!

I would say the nightlife isn't so lively, it's more about relaxation and water sports. A lot of sun and sea. Not really suitable for children because there aren't many activities for them. A place for couples or for those who want to break away from the daily rountine. There are only few bars and they are usually part of hotels.

buying black pearls and sarongs is practically a duty ... be careful, however, to buy only those with a certificate of authenticity. if you go to Vaitape, you will find several shops that sell them, the price can vary greatly depending on the shape, size and manufacturing method.

a small paradise, green and blue with a dream-lilke coral reef and a wonderful lagoon enclosed by a series of islets (motu) dominated by the Otemano volcano covered with dense tropical vegetation. excellent destination for honeymooners

I went during June, you have to bring shoes to go into the sea .. watch out for corals. Bring suncream. Bring casual clothes for the evening, wear a shawl around your shoulders. It's important to bring a lot of swimming costumes and sarongs. Fantastic place .. fabulous sea. Go on a boat trip. You might see unusual fish (manta rays.. sharks.. dolphins ..)

I went for my honeymoon and it was the most beautiful place I'd ever seen. The people are friendly, always smiling. There are several activities you can do, day trips out on the sea and inland, I went swimming with sharks and rays, had a ride in a jeep, visited the vanilla plantation, went to see the extraction of pearls, in short, another world.

Vaipete, a typically peaceful and slow-paced town, with a market and a few cafes, transforms into a dynamic hub of activity in the months of June and July, during the Heiva.
The blue lagoon at Bora Bora offers several opportunities to indulge in water sports—the most famous being the Shark and Ray Feeding Excursion. Snorkeling and scuba diving in and around the lagoon provide a glimpse of marine life.

Bora Bora also offers land excursions and treks. The 4 x 4 Backcountry Excursion up the hills to explore Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu and see the ... More remnants of WWII and to experience the multicolored lagoon in its entirety is memorable.
Other must-see places include Matira Pearls and Moana Arts & Pearls that offer a wide selection of black pearls, Boutique Bora Bora and Boutique Gauguin, where one can find island pareus, woodcarvings, seashells, tapa cloth and batiks of Gauguin paintings, and Coral Gardens, a popular snorkeling location.

‘The Pearl of the Pacific’, Bora Bora is one of the Society Islands of French Polynesia. The island is surrounded by a lagoon and a reef and is centred on an extinct volcano, Mount Otemanu.
The population of the island is about 7,250 residents. It was settled by Tongan people in the fourth century. In 1777, James Cook led the first group of Europeans to the island.
Characterized by a tropical climate, Bora Bora has two seasons. The wet season, or the Polynesian summer, is between the months of November and April. With plenty of rainfall, the hottest months ... More are February and March. The dry season, or the Polynesian winter, from May to October is known as the ‘on season’ for tourism.
The island’s economy primarily depends on tourism. >The public transport of the island is limited; most tourists’ preferred mode of transport is bicycles.
