Often times we find enchanting pictures of a fairytale-like island located in French Polynesia that just seems to be magical in all ways, showing pristine white sand beaches, clear blue waters and waving palm trees.
The island Bora Bora has a certain charm that is sure to seduce you. Although quite pricy, a trip to this heaven on earth continues to entice honeymooners, heiresses and movie stars who just want to get away from the humdrum of their routines and be intoxicated in the beauty of this very romantic and exotic island paradise.
Like a temptress, the island will lure you to all its charms. The island features jagged volcanic peaks against clear blue lagoons.
The island, which was baptized by James Cook as the ‘pearl of the pacific,’ is said to be worth every penny of the très cher entrance fee. It offers numerous five-star resorts to pamper your every need. If you can’t quite afford the five-star treatment, there are many quaint family pensions (guesthouses) situated on some of the best real estate where you may find lodging.
Getting There And Away
There are inter-island boat docks which can take you to and from the island, cargo ships and the Maupiti Express makes regular stops on the island.
If you opt for travel by air, Air Tahiti flies between Bora Bora and Tahiti six days weekly. When flying, the left side of the aircraft offers the best view of the spectacular scenery.
