What to Do in Bora Bora

4x4 Tours

The best way to explore the island is undoubtedly on a 4x4 tour. Tour companies like Vavau, Natura, and Tupana offer tours around the island on 4x4 vehicles, and the drivers will act as tour guides as they tell you about the island's historical sites and natural landscapes. These tours bring you along stunning, picturesque vistas, so make sure you bring a camera!

Marita Beach

Marita Beach, the largest public beach in Bora Bora, is a stunning mile-long landscape of white sand, turquoise waters, and skies the color of lapis lazuli. Along with the usual beach activities, the beach offers resorts, shops, and restaurants, so it's a great place for a day trip. The beach, though popular, is never overly crowded, so this location is perfect for rest and relaxation.

Bloody Mary’s

Bloody Mary's is the most famous restaurant of Bora Bora, and if you visit the island, you have to visit this locale. The building is constructed of bamboo and faces the water—no wonder it's a favorite among celebrities. Here, you'll be able to feast on fresh fish, other meats, and vegetarian options, all while washing the food down with signature cocktails.

What to See in Bora Bora

Mount Otemanu

The largest of the peaks in Bora Bora, Mount Otemanu is a jaw-dropping natural landmark. Topping out at 2400 feet, this volcanic remnant is ideal for those looking for adventure. Accessible via hike, 4x4, boat, or helicopter, you'll find yourself snapping pictures of this stunning natural vista, and when you reach the top, you'll have a dramatic view of the island and the surrounding Pacific Ocean.

Coral Gardens

Situated east of the main island, this coral reef is perfect for those looking to glimpse the natural wildlife of Bora Bora. This section of reef is especially known for its calm, shallow waters, which makes it ideal for beginners. Still, we recommend hiring a tour operator to guide you through the process of snorkeling. Keep an eye out for fish, stingrays, eels, and even reef sharks.

Bora Bora Lagoonarium

Another option if you're looking to witness Pacific wildlife is the Lagoonarium, a family-operated attraction located on one of Bora Bora's motus (atolls). Given the supervision of wildlife guides, it is a great option for families and children. Here, you'll find yourself face-to-face with tropical fish, turtles, and, if you're lucky, dolphins. Afterward, enjoy a tropical barbeque and an afternoon shark feeding session.

Where to Stay in Bora Bora

Vaitape

The only town located in Bora Bora, Vaitape is really a collection of several buildings, including banks, eateries, restaurants, supermarkets, and churches. There are several lodgings available in Vaitape too for those looking to experience Bora Bora without staying in a resort. As you shop, keep an eye out for black pearls, a specialty of Bora Bora.

Marita

Located on the southern tip of the main island, Marita is another somewhat developed area of Bora Bora. Here, you'll find a series of amenities nestled in between two beaches, one of which is Marita Beach, the most popular public beach in Bora Bora. The area includes shops, restaurants, a few hotels, and several general stores.

The Motus (Atolls)

The Motus (also known as atolls) is a series of small islands surrounding the main island of Bora Bora. Speedboats travel from the airport to these small land bodies, zipping through the waters at high speeds. On the Motus, you'll find luxury resorts and traditionally-designed bungalows hanging above the water. These resorts focus on privacy, so if you're looking for exclusivity, we recommend staying on the Motus.
