Bora Bora

Only a 50 minute flight from Tahiti you will find the stunning island of Bora Bora, undoubtedly the world’s most beautiful lagoon. It is known as the Romance Island and home of the famous overwater bungalows.

Your first glimpse of the amazing colours of the Bora Bora lagoon are on arrival at the Motu Mute airport which is located on a motu, a small sandy island. The majority of hotels and resorts are built on motus in the lagoon surrounding the main island, with Mount Otemanu peak as its centrepiece.

The array of blue colours in the lagoon is mesmerising and the waters are warm and clear.

Bora Bora truly is a paradise!
