Bora Bora Island is one of the tourist island you can visit during the holidays. The relatively small island of Bora Bora is an activity giant, offering visitors the chance to experience a 4×4 safari, sunbathe and swim at white sandy beaches, dive in a natural underwater park among fish and corals, experience thrilling shark feedings, or circle the turquoise lagoon by boat. And Bora Bora is a superlative romantic spot. Fall captive to this lush gem of a Polynesian island by sharing an intimate midnight dinner on the beach; visiting the Lagoonarium, the Diving centre, the Coral Gardens or the Leopard Rays Trench; or taking it all in from the lofty heights of 2,300-foot Mount Otemanu.
The attraction of Polynesia is easy to understand when you experience some of the world-renowned friendly atmosphere and hospitality. Capturing a sinking Bora Bora sunset is one of the most beautiful experiences you are likely ever to encounter.
A Mecca for visitors seeking romantic landscapes and sheer natural beauty, Bora Bora stuns at first sight with its twin obsidian peaks soaring from the island’s centre. From the white beaches to the verdant hills and valleys carpeted with hibiscus flowers, there is little that can compare.
Air Tahiti flies to Bora Bora from Tahiti itself and flights last about 50 minutes. All onward transfers to resorts take place via motorboat. Air New Zealand flies directly from Auckland to Tahiti’s Papeete airport, with flying time around five hours.
This island is a veritable feast of romantic scenery, serene valleys and incredible tropical views. The beaches are beyond description and are sure to attract many Virgin travellers to their white sandy beauty. The extinct twin peaks volcano in the centre of the island provides a stunning backdrop to magical holidays on Bora Bora. Get in the ocean for even more excitement in the form of scuba diving – watch out for the sharks and rays though!
Bloody Mary’s has a reputation as the place to visit for meals on Virgin trips to Bora Bora, for its seafood as much as its style – many famous names that have previously eaten here adorn the walls. The service and interesting atmosphere of The Bamboo House set it apart as a must-visit on Bora Bora holidays too
