It takes less than one hour to get to the Bora Bora Island from Tahiti or Moorea by plane. Everybody who comes to this place falls in love with its lagoon, which resembles greens and blues, from the first sight. More charm to this island is added by the castle-like mountain called Mount Otemanu. Tropical slopes and blooming valleys scattering all over the territory are covered with glorious hibiscus.

Stunning soft sandy beaches give way to the azure clear water where colorful fish swim in colonies hanging around massive coral gardens. Many visitors claim that this island is one of the most beautiful places that could be only found in the world. It is interesting that in ancient times this place was called Pora Pora, because there is no letter “B” in the Tahitian language. However, later its name was changed to Bora Bora when Captain Cook mistook the softened sound of “P” for “B”.
