Top 10 things to do in Bora Bora

Beautiful Bora Bora is a destination most commonly associated with dazzling white beaches and crystalline turquoise lagoons. There are a number of eye-popping beaches on which to while away sun-soaked days here, yet this French Polynesian stunner is more than just a haven for sun worshippers. The island boasts a plethora of attractions and activities to enjoy alongside beachside relaxation. Here are 10 things to do in Bora Bora to get the most out of your South Pacific adventure.

  1. Explore Bora Bora Lagoonarium

Take a short boat ride to one of Bora Bora’s ‘motus’ (a small island at the edge of the lagoon) and meander through the Lagoonarium. This popular attraction is effectively a natural aquarium, holding a range of aquatic wildlife in a sheltered section of the lagoon. Dive beneath the surface for face-to-face encounters with rays, turtles, a technicolour fish.

  1. Visit Bora Bora Turtle Centre

Head to Le Méridien Bora Bora Resort and spend some time among the sanctuary’s easy going residents. This lovingly run centre nurses injured turtles until they’re ready to be released back into their natural environment. It also cares for any offspring that might be born at the sanctuary. Tour the coral nursery, the informative museum, and visit the touch pool where you can interact with species such as the handsome Hawksbill turtle.
