Top 15 things to do in Bora Bora

1. Bora Bora Lagoonarium, Vaitape

Enjoy the transparent waters of Bora Bora Lagoonarium, where the clarity of the sea yields exciting views of sharks and other marine life. Tour companies offer swimming and diving excursions to see these underwater creatures in their natural habitat. Let friendly locals and business operators guide you to the best places to spot stingrays and coral, or just recline on the bright, white sands. Beachside accommodations provide relaxing and romantic options to extend your visit and enjoy meals with sweeping sea views.
Suggested duration: 6 hours

2. Matira Beach

Relax at Matira Beach, where the soft, powdery sand invites sunbathers and the clear waters offer a great spot for swimmers and snorkelers. Consider taking a jet ski out into the calm bay for a different perspective, and to view the island from the sea. Set on a more secluded part of the island, the paradisal beach is still easily accessible by car and on foot. Accommodations and restaurants provide options for extending your stay.

4. Mount Otemanu

Head up to the base of Mount Otemanu, an impressive natural monument whose volcanic rock peak marks the highest point on Bora Bora. While the brittle, jagged, 727 m (2,385 ft) summit is too inhospitable to be accessed, you can hike or take a 4x4 trip up to the base of the mountain. The latter option remains the most popular, because of the jungle's density and the difficulty of the walk. Look up at the black, rugged top of the mountain (visible across the island) as it stands in sharp contrast to the lush greens and bright blues of most of the landscape.
