A Bora Bora beach vacation is one of the most desirous and enviable trips imaginable. Bora Bora is known, rightfully, as the “Romantic Island” of French Polynesia, due to its secluded and serene beaches, and surreal raw beauty. The entire island of Bora Bora is surrounded by a deep lagoon and barrier reef. Two impressive peaks rise up and tower over the Bora Bora Island beaches, Mount Otemanu, and Mount Pahia. The landscape is truly breathtaking and provides for a distinctive and unforgettable experience for all who make the enchanted trip to this secluded island in the South Pacific.
There are a number of luxurious resorts and hotels on the beaches in Bora Bora. The Novotel Bora Bora Beach Resort, Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach Resort, Pearl Beach Resort and Spa, and Hotel Intercontinental Le Moana are just a few of the options available to tourists looking to enjoy their Bora Bora beach vacation in style and luxurious comfort.
Many couples enjoy their honeymoons in Bora Bora, and enjoy the privacy and romantic experience afforded them by a stay in an overwater bungalow. The beaches in Bora Bora are spotted with resorts that feature a selection of overwater bungalows, from nicely appointed, basic bungalows, to luxurious, bungalow-suites. This is a way to truly take in the essence of a stay on the island of Bora Bora. Travelers can head to Matira Beach, the biggest and only public beach on the island, or just step outside their bungalow and look down on the gorgeous water, or out on the vast horizon, and simply enjoy the relaxation that comes naturally with a trip to such a place as this.
Many people think that there are countless Bora Bora Island beaches, when in fact, there are a select few strips of sandy beach, but most of the accommodations are located right along the water, and many restaurants, shops, vendors, and bars are located on the beach. You cannot be on Bora Bora and not ultimately find your way to the water. The interior lagoon or the water beyond the reef provides the perfect conditions for excellent diving and snorkeling. In fact, visitors who are not simply relaxing on a Bora Bora beach, with their toes in the warm water, sun bathing, and taking it all in will probably be enjoying the world-class water sports. Because of the amazing barrier reef that surrounds the island as well as the deep lagoon, Bora Bora offers some of the best diving conditions around. Even in a place like French Polynesia, where excellent diving is the order of the day, Bora Bora, along with other islands such as Rangiroa and Manihi, take the top prize in terms of stunning underwater activity and sights.
Bora Bora Island beaches have earned their reputation as some of the most romantic in the world. There is certainly something in the air that promotes romance, tranquility, serenity, and peace. Beaches in Bora Bora, especially during the slower season, tend to be uncrowded, secluded, perfectly clean, and picturesque. Tourists who venture to this remote part of the South Pacific will be pleasantly greeted with an island paradise unlike anything they are likely to have seen before. Bora Bora and its majestic beaches are an ideal destination for anyone looking to get away, relax, and rejuvenate.
