Bora Bora is a tiny island located in the Pacific Ocean, part of the Society Islands of French Polynesia. Only about 8,800 people call Bora Bora home, while many thousands more visit the island and its many resorts in order to experience the great natural beauty of Bora Bora’s pristine beaches and crystal clear water. Because of its connection to France, many of the island’s citizens speak French and Tahitian, but those who are in contact with tourists understand English.

One popular resort to stay at is the Four Seasons Bora Bora Resort The hotel is surrounded by beautiful scenery and a view of the water and coral reefs. Along with the normal amenities hotels give you, each room comes with a pair of snorkeling gear! Internet access is also available in each room.

In the lagoon waters you can participate in many water sports, such as canoeing, jet skiing, sunset cruises, and sailing. Bora Bora has various shopping locations and local markets that take place throughout the year. Bora Bora is also considered one of the most romantic tropical locations in the world, so this is a good place to visit with that special someone in your life.
