The clear blue waters surrounding Bora Bora, and the adjacent islands of French Polynesia, are home to incredible sea life and natural formations that are straight from your dreams. Instead of living your fantasies vicariously through TV programs, you can enjoy pristine beaches and explore the Pacific Ocean via undersea adventures. Bora Bora is a world-class leisure destination. Overwater bungalows and snorkeling make the beaches of Bora Bora ideal for vacation.

Overwater Bungalows

The world-famous overwater bungalows of Bora Bora wrap around the island. They are in close proximity to resort amenities and beaches. You can wake-up, dive off your back porch into the ocean and swim over to the beach to sunbathe. Most of the resorts have chairs, umbrellas and other amenities. You can enjoy the beach to the fullest, without having to lug anything around. If you need to get to your room to prep for lunch or dinner, it’s a short swim back. Of course, you could walk along the beach. Many prefer that route.


For a classic method of exploring the ocean depths without having to wear significant gear, try snorkeling. All you need is a mask and a snorkel to see exotic fish up close and personal. You can snorkel in the shallow waters of Bora Bora, which is ideal if you’re leery of deep water. The schools of fish must be used to seeing people, because they will swim right up to you. You can snorkel right next to the beach, which is fun, efficient and lets you pack in other activities into your itinerary. You can’t beat that.
