Bora Bora Flights Guide
Of the international luxury resort locales in the world, none is as remote as Bora Bora. Located in French Polynesia, in the South Pacific Ocean, Bora Bora is a volcanic island with a sheer rock mountain at its center. It has been inhabited since the 4th century by Polynesians, and for its beauty it is now a premier destination for the rich and famous.
After WWII, many of the American soldiers stationed here had to be forcibly removed by their commanders. It is the quintessential of “paradise”. The island is tropical, with lush forest and palm trees, and jagged rock formations that create its epicenter. Luxury resorts dot the island, which are webs of thatch-roof bungalows that stand out over iridescent teal surf. The clearest, brightest turquoise water is here. The diving outside the reef brings visitors to the marine life, from sharks and manta rays, to sea turtles and dolphins. The snorkeling is exceptional everywhere. Some decide to rent jet skis, and others hike to the top of the mountain for impeccable views of the atoll. There are plenty of restaurants on the island and in the town Vaitape, and Bloody Mary’s is renowned for being the haunt of dozens of celebrities over the years.
During WWII an American airstrip was installed on the island’s surrounding atoll, and today it is the Bora Bora Airport. The only airline to arrive here is Air Tahiti, which flies to Papeete, Tahiti, and connects to international flights.
