Top Things to do in Bora Bora
Bora Bora is one of the most romantic islands in French Polynesia. Known as one of the top wedding and honeymoon destinations in the world, this island exudes romance!
We cruised with Windstar Cruises and were in awe when our Wind Spirit Yacht entered the lagoon, and we could see the highest peak Mount Otemanu is surrounded by a lagoon of jade green to turquoise blue waters, with tiny palm lined islands that encircle the lagoon. Luxury resorts and spas dot the main island and motus with thatched roof villas and overwater bungalows.
Whether you’re a romantic or looking for adventure, there’s lots to do on this island. You’ll fall in love and want to return!
Here’s a list of our favorites.
THINGS TO DO
Snorkeling and Diving:
There are several dive sites and coral reefs to explore. Whether you snorkel or dive, you’ll be amazed at the abundance of tropical fish, stingrays, and sharks.
Jet Ski around Bora Bora:
One of the highlights! We decided to book a reservation with Matira Jet Tours to discover the Lagoon, and jet skiied for 2 hours around the main island with an experienced guide.
We stopped at a private motu for tropical island snacks – coconut, mangos and bananas. Excellent way to see the beauty of Bora Bora and its lagoon. Highly recommend Matira Jet Tours.
Matira Jet Tours offers guided tours around the island of Bora Bora since 1998.
Discover the Lagoon
Discover the Lagoon by outrigger canoe or a catamaran sailboat – sunsets are amazing!
Explore the Island:
Hike or ride a 4×4 vehicle or ATV to explore the island and find panoramic overlooks.
Shop at Vaitepe Center, art galleries, pearl shops, handicraft centers, and find souvenirs – perfumes, oils, vanilla, wood handcrafts.
