Bora Bora, Society Islands

Located northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia, Bora Bora is a beloved sun-and-sand locale. Volcanic peaks dominate this small, unspoiled isle surrounded by coral reefs and aqua lagoons. Visitors swim in the crystalline waters, peruse shops selling mother-of-pearl or sunbathe on Matira Beach’s snow-white sand. Matira Beach surrounds Matira Point, a popular snorkeling spot with an impressive coral garden, and snorkeling and diving tours seeking stingrays and sharks often stop here. Fit adventurers can hike Mount Ohue or Mount Pahia, Bora Bora’s two iconic summits. Rent a Jeep, moped or bicycle to visit WWII sites; Vaitape, the main village; or Fannui Valley, full of fruit plantations. Other activities include water sports, fishing trips, sunset sails and outings on traditional Polynesian outrigger canoes.
