Bora Bora has been a paradise for travelers for many years. This beautiful island in the southern Pacific Ocean has everything that a traveler can want, and it’s all attainable. Beautiful beaches, amazing culture, incredible nature. You name it, it’s here.

If you’re heading to Bora Bora, make sure to see and do these five things:


Never tried parasailing? This is a great place to start! Bring your GoPro for one of the best views of the island and you’ll see all that the island has to offer, under the sea. You’ll also see beautiful lagoons, Mount Otemanu and the outlying reefs from a bird’s eye view, and I can promise you, you’ll never forget them.

Underwater Safari

This is a country full of islands, but some of the best of it is beneath the water. Try an underwater safari for a cool experience that you can’t have elsewhere.

You’ll be equipped with a special helmet (so you can breathe in the water) and will be able to enjoy a two-hour walk undersea. The whole package includes a boat tour of the lagoon and snorkeling as well.

Go on a Boat Tour

Bora Bora tourist’s centers let visitors rent a boat. If you are experienced in sailing, you’re able to charter your own boat.If you’re not a skilled boat man, a tour guide + driver can escort you to some of the island’s hidden spots for snorkeling.


Visit Mount Otemanu

Mount Otemanu is the biggest and the highest spot on the island, and you should definitely plan on visiting it once you get in this country.

Mount Otemanu’s clouds create a stunning view from anywhere on the island. That’s why many Bora Bora hotels try to have rooms with a view of this island’s symbol. Hire a guide and go hiking to meet his giant closer.


Visit Matira Beach

Don’t miss the breathtaking beach of Matira for it’s beauty alone, but if you get bored of that, check out the trails, food stores and shopping there also. It is a fantastic place to watch the sunset as well, due to its perfect location in the western part of Bora Bora.
