About Bora Bora

Bora Bora is an exclusive haunt loved by honeymooners and celebrities, some of whom have reportedly stayed in over-the-water villas for more than US$15,000 per night. A meal or drink at the island's famous Bloody Mary's in Bora Bora Yacht Club is a must. The bar, which has hosted stars from Willie Nelson to Nelson Rockefeller, is as much a part of the Bora Bora experience as swimming in the gorgeous blue-green lagoon, which is three times the size of the island's actual landmass. The good news for cruise passengers is it's cheaper to visit Bora Bora by sea than on a land-based holiday -- and, on some cruises, you get an overnight stay.

The island is a high-end playground dependent on tourism, but it's still not as slick and Hollywood chic as you might expect. Novelist James A. Michener, who penned Tales of the South Pacific and visited 40 islands during his WWII naval service, described Bora Bora "the world's most beautiful island". Within the warm turquoise waters and snow-white ring of sand is a mountainous interior dominated by two majestic peaks -- Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, the remnants of an extinct volcano.

You can make a day of it in Bora Bora simply by lounging on the beach or floating in the lagoon. But if you find it surprisingly difficult to do nothing, there are active pursuits to enjoy on the water and on land. Bora Bora is much more geared to outdoor pursuits than to shopping and culture, although shoppers will find plenty of trinkets for sale at the Vaitape wharf and many high-end pearl shops. Snorkelling and scuba diving are world class, with surprisingly friendly reef sharks and rays. Bicycles are the recommended method of transport if you have time to spare - you can circle around the whole island in three to four hours (or less) depending on fitness levels. The coastal ring road is 32 km long.
