Bora Bora Guide

Advertorial Archive

One of the outermost island groups of French Polynesia, Bora Bora has been a hugely popular international tourist destination for more than 50 years. Its biggest city, Vaitape, holds nearly half of the island’s population. Stunning vistas, sparkling water and luxurious hotels pave the way to unwind in paradise.

GETTING THERE
Air Tahiti Nui operates non-stop flights to Papeete (PPT), on Tahiti, from Los Angeles (LAX). Once you arrive at French Polynesia’s international airport in Papeete, it’s easy to grab a flight with regional carrier Air Tahiti to Bora Bora (BOB), or make arrangements directly with your resort.

GETTING AROUND
When you fly into Bora Bora, you won’t actually be on the main island; you’ll be on Motu Mute, an island just off the northwestern coast. Catch a catamaran shuttle to the main town of Vaitape on Bora Bora. Although Bora Bora is not that big, you’ll still need a way to get around. With limited public transportation options, you will likely rent a car. You can also rent a scooter or bike if you don’t need to go too far. Check with your resort or hotel about complimentary shuttle service.
