Bora Bora Island is known for its breathtakingly beautiful turquoise lagoons

Bora Bora, located about 2,600 miles south of Hawaii, is known for its breath takingly beautiful turquoise lagoons and tangerine sunsets. It’s one of the most beautiful islands on the planet and its blue lagoon is said to be stunning. Moreover, the marine life in the seas is so rich that it’s incomparable to any aquarium.

The fact that there’s countless number of fun things to do at Bora Bora shouldn’t come as a surprise (Snorkeling, sailing, gliding boats, you name it). However, there are a couple of places at Bora Bora that are essential to be paid visits to by tourists. One of them being Matira Beach whose clear waters would stun anyone. It’s an unspoiled public beach that is shallow to the reef. Another place that’s worth a couple of hours of staring is Povai Bay.

Most of the attractions at this island are centered on activities that are aquatic but there are some things to see elsewhere as well. Tourists could even get a feel of history by visiting Taharuu Murae, which played a role during World War II. An interesting fact about Bora Bora is that its name means “the romantic island”. This clearly indicates the loveliness of the island and the reason as to why so many lovers choose to go on vacations there.

Best time to visit Bora Bora Island

Tickets to this heavenly place go on sale and some deals even allow kids to fly for free. You could certainly book early and end up saving more or you could even visit during months that are not considered busy since the prices would be comparatively lower during that time. However, the best time would be one when there’s least chance of storming and that’s during their winter months (from April through October). June to August is particularly windy.
