Bora Bora — 4 nights

There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world.
Visiting Reef Discovery Bora Bora and Mount Otemanu will get you outdoors. Paroisse Saint Pierre-Celestin Church and Alain Despert are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Matira Beach, see the vivid underwater world at Tupitipiti Point, look for gifts at Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearls -Bora Bora, and take in the exciting artwork at Kincaid Galleries.

French Polynesia travel guide

4.4
Spanning an area of the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, French Polynesia includes 118 islands and atolls scattered across the blue ocean. White sand beaches (and pink and black) skirt rugged island peaks, while magnificent coral reefs form tranquil lagoons, dyed a startling blue and teeming with fish, eels, dolphins, rays, turtles, and sharks. The names Tahiti and Bora Bora conjure up images of private thatched bungalows built out over a lagoon, and couples silhouetted against the sunset. That said, a wide range of family-run hotels and bed and breakfasts offer less extravagant (and surprisingly affordable) experiences that take in more of the laid-back local culture.
