Bora Bora by Private Jet
Bora Bora is a volcanic island in French Polynesia that has all the idyllic charm you could wish for in a tropical island paradise. The craggy Mount Otemanu is like a guardian castle that looks over the lush green rain forests, pristine, white-sand beaches and warm, turquoise water. This French Polynesian island is a favorite destination for honeymoons, romantic getaways and celebrity vacations and rightly so. This small island offers a lot of activities for the adventure seeker, as well as a peaceful, relaxing environment.
The island is surrounded by a lagoon with a barrier reef. The lagoon is a protected area of the ocean that is full of brilliantly colored fish, sharks, turtles and sting rays swimming among the coral. There is a natural underwater park called the Coral Garden where all types of fish and corals can be seen.
On the southern tip of the island is Point Matira where graceful manta rays congregate and safely interact with humans. The gray ray and the spotted ray also join during the feeding excursions and like being petted. Along the northern part of the island, White Valley, one can observe gray sharks and barracudas continuously circling each other. The Lagoonarium on the eastern side of the motus or barrier ring around the island is considered by some to be the best attraction on the island. It offers captive marine life in a natural habitat. You’ll swim with sharks, turtles and rays while the tropical fish watch in open curiosity.
Water Sports and Activities
Along with diving and snorkeling, there are other water sports such as Jet Ski tours and kiteboarding. You can also enjoy the underwater wonders without diving in an undersea breathing apparatus that is suitable for children from eight years. Parasailing is available at Matira Beach and children over four years are welcome.
In the Air and On Land
To get the spectacular view of the island, surrounding reef and amazing shades of blue of the water, you can take a helicopter ride. However, you can also hike to the top of the other mountain, Mount Pahia. It’s a five to six hour return hike and only for adventurous travelers, but if you and your family are up to it, it’s well worth the effort. You need a guide, and the last few meters are the toughest. If you would rather have an easier hike, there are many walks throughout the mountainous interior where you’ll see lots of flora and fauna.

Bora Bora has historical sites left over from World War II including seven giant cannons in strategic places around the island that were used to protect the supply depot against the Japanese. You can take a 4X4 tour and visit lookout points and other historical locations. If you want a change of speed, you can arrange a flight to Sydney, Australia and enjoy a metropolitan experience.
Bora Bora also offers a unique shopping experience with art galleries and boutiques that have both traditional and modern items. The black pearl jewelry is exquisite. You can also dive for your own pearl or visit The Farm at the Bora Pearl Company where you can learn about pearls and see local handicrafts such as wood carvings and pottery.
