Bora Bora ... Ahhh ... A Dream Destination

Sculpted by sky-piercing, moss-green peaks and lined with vivid turquoise lagoons, sultry French Polynesia is a place to take it slow and experience warm, laid-back island culture.

The Dream
Tahiti: just the word conjures up centuries’ worth of images: hibiscus flowers; bronzed dancers in grass skirts; a humid breeze over turquoise sea. The islands of French Polynesia became legends the minute the first European explorers reached their home shores with tales of a heaven on earth where the soil was fertile, life was simple and lust was guilt-free. While the lingering hype is outdated, French Polynesia is still about as dreamy as reality gets. The lagoons are just as blue but there are freeways, more conservative values and nine-to-five jobs. It’s not the untainted paradise of explorer lore, but at least there’s an internet connection.

Lagoon Spectacular
The slim stretches of white-, pink- and black-sand beaches in French Polynesia are really just pretty springboards into the real draw: the lagoons. Most high islands are surrounded by fringing reef that creates a protected swimming pool of the most intense aqua imaginable. Coral atolls have this same calibre of lagoon minus the big island in the middle. Fish, dolphins, rays, sharks, turtles and more inhabit these clear-water coral gardens that are as excellent for snorkelling as they are for diving and swimming. Surfers ride glassy wave faces at reef passes while kitesurfers fly across the water with the trade winds.

To Luxe or Not to Luxe
Over-the-top indulgence has become French Polynesia’s – or more specifically Bora Bora’s – signature, and often overshadows what the rest of the country has to offer. Resorts on the ‘Pearl of the Pacific’ are a honeymooner’s dream, with private overwater bungalows and spectacular views of the island’s iconic, square-topped peak. But if this isn’t your cup of coconut water, or not in your budget, don’t let that dissuade you from visiting French Polynesia. Small, family-run lodgings offer a closer-to-the-culture experience for considerably less financial output.



  • Day 1

    Arrival Tahiti / Day at leisure

    Arrival Tahiti / Meet & Greet by our local representative / Transfer to hotel for check in

    What Tahiti lacks in wide white-sand beaches, it makes up for in waterfall-laden, shadowy mountains, unpretentiously beautiful black-sand beaches, sheltered blue lagoons and a distinctly Polynesian, modern buzz.

    This is the heart of the islands, where the cultures from all the archipelagos are mixed in the cacophonous, dusty, yet smiling and energetic capital of Pape'ete. Outside the city, explore the majestic, mountainous interior on a 4WD tour, learn to dive in the translucent lagoon, wander amid mystical archaeological sites, and from July to October go whale-watching. In July, catch the country�s most spectacular festival; the percussion and dance-heavy Heiva.

    Stay at a resort or head to Tahiti Iti to experience a more traditional pace of life � all international air travel goes through Tahiti, and it would be a shame to miss such an essential part of this region's cultural puzzle.

    Rest of the day at leisure to rest or if you are up for some action, we recommend a short trip to the - must see Papeete market �

    The lively and colourful market is filled with a wide range of local produce and seafood. Visitors enjoy the local flavour, and it is a good place for crafts and souvenirs. The Maeva Cafe, just up the escalator, is a great spot for a casual snack or coffee

    Overnight at Tahiti

  • Day 2

    Tahiti / Mountain Safari

    After breakfast, Full day Mountain 4WD Safari

    Discover the natural wonders of Tahiti on this inner-island safari tour by 4WD vehicle.

    After your guide picks you up from your hotel, hop into the Jeep for a thrilling ride � traversing rough roads best accessed by a 4x4 vehicle.

    Make your first stop at Mount Marau, a former 19th-century French fortress. Treat yourself to a gorgeous vista of the lush, rainforest-clad Punaruu Valley and snap photos of the island's highest peaks: Orohena, Aorai, Tetufera and Teamaa.

    Your tour continues to the Arahoho Blowhole, an unmarked roadside attraction created over eons by liquid lava, when battering surf undercut the basalt shoreline and eroded a tunnel-like passageway. When large waves crash into the rocks, watch in awe as a geyser-like plume of seawater shoots into the air and sprays onlookers.

    Check out the local surfers and the black-sand beach before re-boarding the Jeep. You�ll enter to the Faaurumai Valley near Tahiti�s north coast to visit the three waterfalls of the Cascades of Faarumai � nestled in nearly impenetrable rainforest of hutu and mape trees. It�s an easy 5-minute walk to Vaimahutu Falls, which plunges 100 feet (30 meters) into a crystal-clear pool below.

    Follow your guide along a 20-minute rainforest walk to reach the other two cascades, Haamaremare Iti and Haamaremare Rahi, and spend time at the final waterfall with a refreshing swim if you�d like.

    Back in your 4WD vehicle, make the return trip to Papeete where your full-day tour ends.

  • Day 3

    Tahiti / Day trip to Moorea

    After breakfast, visit Tahiti�s sister island � Moorea - just a 45 minute ferry away, and perfect for a day trip

    If you've been dreaming of holiday-brochure turquoise lagoons, white-sand beaches, vertical peaks and lush landscapes, you'd be hard-pressed to find better than this gem of an island. Hovering less than 20km across the 'Sea of the Moon from its big sister, Tahiti, Moorea absorbs its many visitors so gracefully that its feels surprisingly nontouristy.

    There are pretty white-sand beaches, but nothing big and sweeping. The drawcard is the limpid, warm water of the vibrant lagoon. If you need some action, learn to kitesurf, take a hike, go on a whale- or dolphin-watching tour, hire a bike or a kayak, or go horse riding. Whatever the experience, there�s only one word to describe Moorea: divine!

    Back to Tahiti by evening

    Overnight at Tahiti

  • Day 4

    Tahiti to Bora Bora Flight / Day at leisure

    After breakfast, transfer to airport for flight to Bora Bora

    Ah, Bora Bora. The stuff of dreams. As you arrive by plane, the view says it all. How not to be mesmerised by this stunning palette of sapphire, indigo and turquoise, all mixed together in modern-art abstractions ? And these sand-edged motu (islets) and soaring rainforest-covered basaltic peaks ?

    With such a dreamlike setting, Bora Bora is, unsurprisingly, a honeymooners choice. But there�s much more to do than clink glasses with your loved one in a luxurious hotel. The good thing is that you can mix slow-paced sun-and-sand holidays with action-packed adventures.

    Diving, snorkelling, lagoon tours, hiking and parasailing are readily available. What you shouldn�t expect, though, is a thriving nightlife. Bora Bora is a quiet island. And this dream destination is much more accessible than you think. As well as five-star resorts, a handful of low-key midrange hotels beckon.
