Guide to Bora Bora

Jewel of the South Seas

As one of the most celebrated islands in the South Pacific, the sparkling island of Bora Bora is a great treat for those exploring French Polynesia on a luxury yacht charter. Scattered with picturesque anchorages, turquoise azure waters and an abundance of scenic hotspots, Bora Bora is perfect for those looking for a luxury escape that is incomparable to anything other place in the world.

Bora Bora is globally renowned to be one of the most romantic destinations on the planet, a honeymooners dream and a place where beauty and charm is unrivalled, so much so that yacht charterers who visit here simply never want to leave. With an abundance of five star-resorts sprinkled graciously across the island, guests can hop off their vessel and enjoy a top-class massage, couples treatments on the beach or spend the evening underneath the stars in a private over-water villa. Some of the best on the island include the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, Conrad Bora Bora Nui and St Regis Bora Bora Resort, all of which are home to some of the best spas in French Polynesia. 

A totally private oasis, Bora Bora allows couples, families and friends to explore her exceptional lagoons and pristine beaches with no restrictions. Diving, snorkelling and lagoon tours are the most popular pastimes here and are easily accessible from your super yacht charter. After basking in the sunshine, jump off your vessel and into the calm waters of a picturesque sand-edged motu (islets. Particularly popular is the Motu Tapu Lagoon where guests are likely to encounter some of the most spectacular marine life from many different species of tropical fish to larger sea creatures such as manta rays and sharks. 

With such a dreamlike setting, Bora Bora is perhaps the easiest place for you to kick back, relax and rejuvenate. You will find you are constantly surrounded by the most remarkable scenery whether that be the soaring rainforest-covered basaltic peaks or the soft white sandy beaches. The island is so quiet, so don’t expect a booming nightlife. 

You can, however, enjoy date nights on the beach, cocktails under the stars and enjoy some top quality fine dining in some pretty unique destinations. Try La Villa Mahana for the ultimate dining experience. Set in an elegant and sophisticated courtyard, the top restaurant provides guests with a fresh and exciting menu filled with a range of delectable dishes and to top it off, each meal comes with a magnificent wine pairing that will take your dining experience to the next level.

If it is the adventure you’re looking for, you won’t be disappointed with what Bora Bora has to offer. With so much to see on water and onland, guests have the opportunity to get involved with many exciting and adrenaline-filled activities. You could hike amongst the hibiscus, past ancient villages to reach the volcanic summit of Mount Pahia, or take a 4X4 tour of the island before visiting boutique shops to buy local oils, vanilla, and black pearls; the opportunities are endless. 

With such a diverse range of pursuits to enjoy and explore, Bora Bora promises to be an exceptional vacation destination. If you'd like to learn more about chartering around these waters, please contact a recommended yacht charter broker to start planning your next vacation.
