This is it, this is the one. The arrival by plane says it all. From above, the promise of a wonderland is instantly made good: glinting turquoise sea and dazzlingly white sandy stretches of beach. Add sumptuous resorts in a sensational lagoon setting and indulgent gourmet dining in fancy restaurants and it’s small wonder Bora Bora stakes a convincing claim to being a piece of paradise. This diva of an island is not only for unbridled pampering and romance, though; when you’ve finished sipping your maitai, check out diving, snorkelling, parasailing, walking under the sea and even hiking in the spectacular mountainous interior.
But so superior are its proportions that Bora Bora remains the stuff of legend, and nothing can beat a few days here to make the most of its pleasures and charms. And don’t fret if your budget isn’t in the four-figures-a-day category. A handful of quaint pensions and affordable midrange hotels beckon. They’re not as ritzy, but you’ll enjoy a slice of paradise nonetheless. Check in and chill out.
