There is a reason why they call Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world. Nestled northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia sits a small island in the South Pacific. Known for its crystal-clear teal waters, vibrant tropical fish, and beautiful views, Bora Bora is a must for adventurers, luxurists, and honeymooners alike. Take a swim with fish at Coral Gardens, Bora Bora’s famous lagoon that is protected by a barrier reef. Or break out the Deep Dive swimsuit and snorkel at the Lagoonarium, a natural aquarium just east of the main island. Check out Tupitipiti Point and Mount Otemanu for breathtaking views and endless photo ops. While most resorts feature private beaches, Matira Beach is the only public beach on the island and is the go-to spot for boat rentals and local tours.
