The World’s Most Romantic Island

Simply looking at pictures of Bora Bora may leave you at a loss for words.

But it really needs to be seen in-person to be believed.

The romance, legends and mysteries associated with Bora Bora give this place a special kind of magic.

Right now, your timing couldn’t be any more perfect. The best times to go to Bora Bora are between November and April. These short shoulder seasons offer fine weather and limited tourists.

Surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef, this secluded, dream-like setting, is located at the heart of the Pacific Ocean in French Polynesia. It is touted by many honeymooners and romantics as a place for love or a place to fall in love all over, again. But it is also a magnificent experience for anyone for almost any occasion, as it has a tendency to capture imaginations with its fantasy.

There’s nothing like escaping to a stunning location, especially when it brings out the starry eyes in the most jaded traveler.

Its magnificent lagoons, valleys of blooming hibiscus flowers, lush greenery and white sandy beaches are only a few of the fantastic wonders this enchanting isle offers visitors. There are hardly any days where the sun refuses to shine down and even if it does rain, the weather is still pleasant.

There are very few resorts in the world that have over-water bungalows as accommodations. Where else can you wake up in the morning and jump off of your pontoon into the ocean? It’s truly a surreal experience.  A seductive over-water bungalow perched above a turquoise lagoon? Yes, please!

The abundant swirl of colorful marine life in the lagoons beneath your bungalow will astound you. A mask, snorkel and two fins is all you need and most hotels provide them free to guests.

Although it may not be the most affordable place in the world to visit, you must experience the magic of Bora Bora at least once in your lifetime. Without a doubt, it is worth every penny spent. Become a castaway and join the thousands of other travelers who have experienced the sheer beauty and magic of this island.
