Bora-Bora, French Polynesia
ADD TO LIST
Bora Bora is a combination of tall, dramatic, and rugged volcanic peaks surrounded by an amazingly clear emerald lagoon. Many small islets surround the lagoon, and these islets are surrounded by coral reefs. Bora Bora is also covered with beautiful lush foliage.
Some popular activities on Bora Bora include snorkeling and diving in the lagoon, where you can see colorful fish, manta rays, and sharks. The white sandy beaches are also very popular for lounging around, and the over-water stilt bungalows are iconic places of accommodation.
For those interested in exploring a bit more, you can travel around the 32km road that hugs the coast around the island. In addition to the beaches and wonderful scenery, you can see the remnants of World War II sites, and sacred marae sites.

This IS paradise. The people are so friendly, the water so clear. You could sit on the beach at the water and the fish would swim right up to you. So much history for such a smaill island. The beaches...well what can i say, white beauitful, just NOT sand, but crushed coral and so so nice. It is a place you must see. Both my husband and I truely glad we went and would suggest it to anyone.
