Bora Bora Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

With overwater bungalows, to teeming wildlife and tropical jungle, Bora Bora’s reputation for idyllic getaways has been carried on the
tides to all corners of the globe. Shimmering in the South Pacific Ocean, and sheltered by a pristine lagoon and barrier reef, the French Polynesian island
group is just a one hour flight from Tahiti. Bora Bora has nurtured its inhabitants with a bountiful song since the 3rd century, when the earliest Polynesian
mariners arrived on these shores. In ancient times, the islands were known as “Pora Pora mai te pora”, or created by the gods…, today this paradise appears
to have been created for just one thing, relaxation. Getting to the pearl of
the pacific is an adventure in itself. Most travelers fly into Tahiti, before boarding a small plane
for the short flight to Bora Bora. Take in the soaring peak of Mount Otemanu, whose eruptions lifted the
ocean floor into the bright pacific sunlight, millions of years ago. From Bora Bora Airport, take the ferry across the lagoon to the main island and let your tensions slip away in the wake behind you. Step ashore and be welcomed
by the happy harmonies of island songs in Vaitape, Bora Bora’s largest town. Browse the local markets for a snack, or start collecting
treasures like Tahitian pearls or crafts, lovingly made by locals. When you’ve finished exploring Vaitape, set sail to your chosen resort. With breathtaking views of Mount Otemanu, crystal clear waters brimming with life, and of course,
your very own over-water or beachfront bungalow, Le Meridian is a five-star favorite
of honeymooners and romantics. Another of Bora Bora’s most iconic
bungalow hideaways is St Regis Resort. After a day exploring the lagoon’s vibrant marine life and savoring the island’s fresh flavors, unwind in your bungalow,
and let the melody of lapping waters beneath, lull you into a state of total relaxation. Rise to the morning tides and set out on a boat tour to explore the aquatic
abundance of Bora Bora’s lagoon. Slip into the sheltered waters to meet friendly rays and black-tipped reef sharks. Swap your boat for a bike at Matira Point, and explore the cafes,
markets and vistas of Bora Bora’s southernmost tip. When it’s time to cool off
again, park your bike at Matira Beach, Bora Bora’s most popular public beach. Immerse yourself in the refreshing waters, or roll out your towel on the
sunbaked sands and lounge the afternoon away. Nearby, surrender to the luxury of the Sofitel Marara. Or follow the scent of frangipani
across the lagoon to the Sofitel Motu. This private resort island is the shimmering jewel of one of the world’s most lavish hotel groups. Don’t just come to experience luxury, take some home. At the Bora Pearl Company,
dive for your very own Tahitian pearl, and discover how the island’s lagoon
is filled with life, as well as treasures. Bora Bora has been serenading faraway dreamers with its sweet ocean songs since the dawn of travel. Just as those first Polynesians
sought new shores and discovered paradise, so will you. Glistening in the heart of the South Pacific, Bora Bora is one of our planet’s rarest pearls.

  1. We love Expedia travel guide videos. Great Video! We created a 7 video playlist about French Polynesia in our Spanish channel. We explained how we booked all hotels with credit card points and all the activities we did!

    We love Expedia mobile App too!

  2. I please request to everyone round the globe…Subscribe to this channel and watch its extraordinary videos…they are so relaxing and peaceful to our mind…Expedia people are really working hard to show us the whole world and we could see the world by sitting at one place…their picturization and music for each and every video is something extraordinary, beautiful, excellent, amazing and awesome.

  3. Have travelled the world and think Bora Bora is the best. St Regis and Four Seasons are awesome!
    But mosquitos are issues in Papeete…highly recommend Tahiti in general though!

  4. The hotels shown are good, very good. But when I was at the four seasons and look at this. I am so glad I bite the bullet and went with four seasons over water bungalow.

  5. In Korea, the Roman alphabet Bora means either purple or women's back name. The name of this area is quite interesting in that regard.

  6. Watching this video brings back some amazing memories of being there, paradise just doesn’t cover the experience, magical

  7. Ive been there, so awesome but def stay a night or two in Tahiti if you go. That place is awesome as well

    Also I highly recommend getting a room with a glass bottom, at night (with a flood light on) you can see fish swim beneath you all night
