From hiking in lush mountains to snorkelling with sharks, it’s hard to get bored in Bora Bora. Whether you’re brave enough to swim with sharks and rays, or prefer to see them from the floor of a glass-bottomed boat, there’s a water activity for everyone.
Prefer to stay on land? On a cultural 4×4 tour you’ll take in beautiful scenery, ride up the mountains for panoramic views, learn some history with a stop at World War II cannons, visit ancient temples, and get a taste of local culture at a handicraft market. When you’ve had enough adventure, relax on one of the hundreds of pristine beaches.
The island has some of the most luxurious resorts in the world, including the Hilton Conrad Bora Bora Nui Resort, the newest 5-star resort in French Polynesia. Wherever you stay, book an overwater bungalow and take some time for a spa treatment. Many spas use local techniques and ingredients, like deep sea water and fragrant vanilla.
Of course, it wouldn’t be travel without a chance to taste some exciting new foods. Fresh fruits, endless seafood, and French pastries make Bora Bora stand out as a culinary destination.
