Bora Bora island

Ultimate guide (November 2019)
Bora Bora is an atoll in the South Pacific, French Polynesia. Famous for its lagoon with overwater bungalows. The best beaches are located in expensive resorts located on remote motu (islands) along the perimeter of atoll. However, budget travelers have also some opportunities. Shore and seabed: sand, coral chips. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

We recommended to live a bit in different hotels around the atoll and spend at least one night in a water bungalow. The most expensive rooms - with Mount Otemanu view - symbol of Bora Bora. If you prefer Big central island, try to choose a hotel on Matira Point, as it is the best public beach in Bora Bora.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Tahiti International Airport (PPT). Then fly to Bora Bora Airport (BOB). Budget travelers can get from Tahiti to Bora Bora by Aremiti 4 ferry, which runs once a week.

Useful information [edit]

You can significantly save on food if buy groceries at supermarket in the central Vaitape village (near the church).

There is a motor boats rental (from $150 for a half day) located on the Matira Point beach, so there is a unique opportunity to explore the lagoon sailing on your own boat. The best beaches are located on remote motu, but most of the coast is a private property with limited access. Nevertheless, there are some good free sites.

If buy air tickets to Bora Bora, when you are in Tahiti, fares will be about 30-40% cheaper in comparison with online fares! You can even buy online at web site of Air Tahiti. Fares will be "local", when you have local IP.

I would also recomment Bora Bora for the long time room's rental. Everything will be cheaper than in Tahiti. And you don't need a car in Bora Bora, while in Tahiti a rental car is a must.
