Looking for a Pacific Island to spend some quality time with friends, family or your special someone? Imagine an island with soaring rain-forest covered peaks, a classic lagoon of blues and greens, and a ring of coral reef and tiny islets with lovely beaches and coconut trees. It sounds like the perfect place to be and you actually can find this place of bliss on Earth called Bora Bora.
Bora Bora is an island with sweeping beaches in the south and ancient Polynesian temples hidden in the jungle. Located about 160 miles northwest of Tahiti and approximately 2,600 miles south of Hawaii, Bora Bora is arguably the most beautiful island on the planet. The island is populated by 8,880 Polynesians who love to show visitors their treasured lagoon and its marine inhabitants. They also love to entertain visitors with music and dance. Bora Bora’s rugged main island, and a few smaller islands, are completely surrounded by coral reefs.
A Romantic Get-Away
No one is going to argue the Bora Bora is the most beautiful and romantic island in the world. Just the sight of the island will fill you with happiness. If you were to imagine paradise, Bora Bora surely would not be too far from that picture perfect place you would want to be in. It wouldn’t even be a surprise to hear people travel to Bora Bora for their honeymoon or even for their wedding as the place is perfectly breathtaking.
Often seen in postcards and pictures, describing the perfect vacation, the resorts of Bora Bora offer private bungalows built over the water with private balconies offer amazing views of the lagoon and the sunsets. The superb amenities, breathtaking views and the secluded intimacy provided by the over-water bungalows will provide you with an experience you will never forget. Although, you may believe that you dreamed about the entire vacation once you get back to the real life.
The enchanting, crystal clear waters of the lagoon provide the perfect opportunities for scuba diving, snorkeling or just for viewing as you relax on the beach or in your bungalow. The lagoon can also offer more excitement for those that want to enjoy jet skiing, sailing, wind-surfing or a romantic sunset cruise in the evenings.
There is something here that creates the perfect sunset each and every night in Bora Bora. It must have to do with glowing, crystal clear, turquoise water that helps reflect the sunlight with a unique twist of radiant colors. You will just have to see it for yourself to fully understand.
Spectacular Underwater Experience
So far, just seeing what is available on top of the water is more than enough to make Bora Bora the perfect destination. However, below the water’s surface lies another attraction that is simply amazing. To enjoy the underwater attractions, you can go scuba diving, snorkeling or even try the Aquascope, Aquasafari or visit the Lagoonarium.
Don a mask, snorkel, and flippers to see what lies beneath the watery blue. Advanced divers have both the lagoon and ocean to explore and many creatures to meet, though beginners will be able to mingle with manta rays as well.
Made famous by books, movies, and its stunning beauty, the island is now besieged by tourism and overcrowding. Regardless, if you must visit a South Pacific island (and you should), Bora Bora would be an excellent choice. An option you could take for beautiful beaches would be in Boracay. Take a trip to Boracay and see its beauty for yourself.
