Bora Bora, “The Romantic Island” is often called the most beautiful island in the world and it lives up to that standard.
This tiny, postcard perfect island that is just 18 miles in circumference with a landmass of just under 15 square miles – is encircled by a protective necklace of coral. The soaring volcanic peaks, with lush green colors provide a dramatic backdrop for the indescribable turquoise lagoon. It’s no surprise that most of the island’s activities center on the spectacular lagoon.
Bora Bora is home to world-class resorts and quaint French-inspired restaurants. One such must see iconic restaurant is Bloody Mary’s, where you can dig your feet in the sand floor while enjoying your charbroiled seafood.
In the lagoon mantra rays are often seen in the shallow waters. Mantra rays are pretty harmless plankton feeders but they can grow to pretty impressive sizes.
Whether you enjoy diving, snorkelling, hiking or touring the lagoon, you’ll quickly understand why Bora Bora is, unsurprisingly, many people’s idea of the perfect island.
