This French Polynesia jewel, Bora Bora, is considered as the most celebrated island in the South Pacific. It’s one of the few places on earth that everyone would wish to be. Most visitors always come back to this romantic splendor.
Bora Bora lies northwest of Tahiti, an hour away by air. The island from the plane window is a view and a moment you will never forget. After landing, the experiences exceed even your highest expectations.
The island is renowned for the overwater bungalows, which are lavish floating villas with glass floors. Popular lagoon excursions include snorkeling, diving, cruising, fishing, kite surfing, jet skiing and ray fish feeding. Also, Bora Bora charms the visitor with soaring mountain peaks, turquoise lagoon waters and white beaches, coral reefs as well as luxury resorts and lots of water and land activities.
Bora Bora is in the same time zone as Hawaii, and is two hours behind the West Cost during Pacific Standard Time.
Because Bora Bora is below the Equator, the seasons are the reverse of those in the Northern Hemisphere.
Tahitian and French are the main languages spoken throughout French Polynesia. English is spoken in most major hotels, shops and restaurants.
Tap water in hotels and restaurants is generally safe to drink.
Electricity in Bora Bora and French Polynesia in general, is 220V, alternating at 60Hz.
