Floating northwest of Tahiti, in French Polynesia, the island of Bora Bora, with its steep hills and turquoise blue lagoon strewn with bungalows on stilts, is undoubtedly a magnificent and magical destination, a true archetype of the tropical postcard island. With a population of just over 10,000 people thriving around the central volcano, it has only one pass, Teavanui, which faces the main village, Vaitape. The quay receives both liners and inter-island shuttles, which come alive with each landing of tourists and cruise passengers, often because the reputation of the leeward island has become so worldwide! The tourist guide of Bora Bora takes you to Matira Point and its spectacular sunsets, to the mountains for a few walks in the heart of a lush and tropical nature, and underwater of course: the lagoon and its formidable barrier of black, yellow or pink corals is a monumental exotic aquarium where you can swim with black-tipped sharks or manta and leopard rays. Bora Bora's many luxury establishments, never higher than a coconut tree, offer a plethora of activities: tour of the island by canoe or sail, water skiing, underwater scooter, aquasafari, freefall, paddle, kitesurfing, fishing in all its forms... Between idleness, monoi, pareo, turquoise and crystal clear water, marine cuisine based on raw fish and breathtaking landscapes, it is difficult to remain indifferent to the striking beauty of this idyllic Polynesian island.
