Coined the â€˜Pearl of the Pacificâ€™, Bora Bora is an island paradise where everyone celebrates life in the sun. The clear waters, coral reefs, and healthy population of marine life make this island one of the best holiday destinations for people who love the ocean.
Hike up a mountain, dive to the bottom of the reefs, or enjoy one of the guided tours offered on the island. Be sure to bring your underwater camera on this holiday, as you won't want to miss out on the brilliant photo opportunities when you explore the Coral Gardens. Begin planning your ocean adventure when you make your travel arrangements through ebookers.
Summer on Bora Bora is from November through April, and this is when most of the rains come. Try visiting in May or June for the best chance at clear skies. Average high temperatures in Bora Bora vary a little throughout the year, hovering between 28 degrees and 30Â°C. The Bora Bora Liquid Festival takes place on the first week of December and celebrates all types of water sports. If you are in Bora Bora in early December, be sure to go watch the competitions on the beach and cheer for your favourite contestants.
Tourists who don't want to eat out for every meal can find the local supermarket located near the Novotel Bora Bora.
The lack of sign on this small upscale restaurant doesn't make it any less popular with the locals, but does make it hard for tourists to find.
This local favourite that sits around the corner from Le Moana offers salads, pasta, and takeout pizza for hungry patrons.
Try the raw fish at this unassuming restaurant that serves excellent fare. Go on a day when there is a nice breeze, because there is no air conditioning.
Locals enjoy eating at seaside Roulottes for their real food and laid-back atmosphere.
This mountain is the remains of an extinct volcano that rises out of a blue lagoon, offering great climbing opportunities for experienced hikers.
Bring your underwater camera to this area. So many fish swim in its waters, it is sometimes difficult to see anything else.
Bora Bora Submarine
This submarine dives 30 feet to the bottom of an area filled with sharks, rays, and other fish for a unique underwater viewing experience.
Rent a small boat to explore the lagoon at your own leisurely pace. Bring your own food, because you can't dock these boats.
This diving area is marked by sharp drop-offs, large fish, and purple coral that provide an interesting underwater photo opportunity.
Deep Ocean Spa
Look through the glass floors while you are getting a treatment at this spa to watch the fish in the lagoon below.
