Discover the neighborhoods of Bora Bora Island
Bora Bora Island
The island of Bora Bora is a jewel in the Society Islands of French Polynesia, surrounded by nearly a dozen islets. Known for its incredible beauty and luxury, this destination is also known for being incredibly pricey. The island is reached via a flight that lands an islet at Motu Mute Airport, and then travelers are ferried from the islet to Vaitape – the main village of Bora Bora.
The trip to Bora Bora and the accommodation on the island may be intimidating for the budget, but there are experiences the island offers that can be enjoyed for little to no money. The beaches may not be sprawling, but they are far from crammed. Matira Beach is considered to be the island’s most famous. Snorkeling and swimming are quite popular and very rewarding experiences, especially if done at locations such as Motu Paahi Reef. And with no cinemas or museums to visit, travelers are bound to find themselves out and about, possibly feeding sharks or swimming with dolphins. Tours and cruises, deep sea fishing, and parasailing are but a few more ways to make the most of the Bora Bora experience.
Bora Bora is not lacking in 5-star luxury with several properties to choose from on the mainland and islets. Budget options – at least budget compared to Bora Bora’s high-end options – are even offered.
