Destination title

The name conjures up turquoise lagoons with overwater bungalows, the quintessential image of an island paradise.



Bora Bora is a fitting place for an upscale private luxury yacht cruise. Whale watching, feeding the stingrays or just relaxing in a sun lounger on a teakwood deck, swim stops in scenically beautiful spots, exciting diving escapades and thrills and chills of water sports – the range of experiences is so wide you’ll find it hard to know where to begin!


Bora Bora – THING TO DO 

Sky-piercing Mount Otemanu is a remnant of an ancient volcano overlooking some of the most beautiful turquoise blue water. Opting for the hike, you’ll be rewarded with epic views and incredible memories. Prefer to skip the climb? You will still enjoy the view of Mount Otemanu itself towering over the lagoons, you’ll see it everywhere you go on the island, including Matira Beach.

Matira Beach faces west so it’s a great spot for truly stunning sunsets. Add crystal clear water, warm, shallow, mirror-calm as it is protected by the reef, proximity to the marina so you won’t have to travel too far from your yacht, gorgeous white sand, a strong likelihood of spotting a stingray or butterfly fish swimming by, and you’ll agree that Matira Beach is a place you don’t want to miss.

Wildlife enthusiasts will appreciate Bora Bora Turtle Centre, where people nurture and treat injured turtles. Once they recover, they are put back in the wild ocean. In the morning a marine biologist does a presentation on the anatomy and life of turtles and afterwards you get to feed these amphibious reptiles in the rehab centre and swim with them in the lagoon.

How about feeding stingrays and swimming with sharks? Leopard Rays Trench is where you’ll be able to do that. Standing in waist deep water you can play with rays and see black tip sharks circling around. They are docile and don’t bite. If you put a chunk or fish in front of rays they'll climb right on top of you to get it. Rays feel velvety and spongy to the touch, sharks are shy and keep at a distance, but there are plenty of photo opportunities so don’t forget your waterproof camera.



Vaitape, the largest city in Bora Bora, is the place to taste local cuisine and experience fine dining Bora Bora style. Prepare for fantastic seafood, stunning views and immaculate service. French influence in Bora Bora is understandably strong, so there are many restaurants proffering French cuisine: St James Bora Bora, Lagoon Restaurant by Jean-Georges, The Chef's Table by La Villa Mahana and more. Bora Bora Yacht club serve French dishes as well, however their menu also includes Italian and Polynesian fare.

In the mood for nightlife and drinking? Consider Bloody Mary’s. It is essentially an American fish and steak house, one of the most popular drinking holes on Bora Bora. The only nightclub in Bora Bora is Le Récife Discothèque, about half a mile north of Vaitape, operating only on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 pm to 3 am.
