Unquestionably the most mythical of the Pacific islands, Bora Bora is picture perfect - the iconic paradise island of your dreams.

Set in one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world and home to the dramatic peak of Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora’s central, lush green island is surrounded by a myriad of islets nestling in a lagoon, which is inhabited by abundant marine life, both large and small.

Manta rays and sharks are encountered at the dive sites both inside and outside the lagoon. Watch the giant manta rays glide pass at Anau or see the teeming grey sharks and barracuda at Muri Muri (White Valley). Leopard Rays Trench is renowned for the beauty of its crystal clear waters. Bora Bora also has fine coral and a wide variety of smaller fish and marine life.
