There is so much to do in Bora Bora, here are my top 4 activities!
You can’t leave Bora Bora without taking this tour. This tour included swimming with Manta Rays, Stingrays and Black-Tip Reef Sharks (Don’t worry they are vegetarians).
Set out for the Bora Bora lagoons during a memorable day of snorkeling, starting with hotel or port pickup. We got picked up right from the dock at our hotel. Board your powerboat and cruise over turquoise waters fringed by lush coastline, and soak up stunning views en route to your first lagoon.
Hop into the shallow water and slip on the provided snorkel and mask (Bring your own if you are concern about Covid) to begin your stingray experience.
The tour was amazing. Manta Rays, Stingray and Black-Tip Reef Sharks are just some of the treasures to be found around the gorgeous lagoons of Bora Bora. On this full day lagoon cruise. Enjoy plenty of snorkeling opportunities plus a delicious barbecue lunch at a private island. You’re treated to French Polynesian hospitality and entertainment. Topped by incredible photo ops from the island summit. The tour cost per person is $145 USD with Vavau 4×4 Adventures.
This experience left me speechless.
I’ve been dreaming of swimming with whales, so we decided to do it during our trip, and it was one of the best decision we’ve ever made! We stayed at St.Regis, asked the concierge to book whale watching for us.
The captain Fabien even had some special audio to listen to male whale singing. Cost $208 USD
We went outside the Bora Bora island, not too far from the reef. It took about almost an hour to find a male Humpback whale and we finally got into the water to have a closer look!
We could swim next to the lovely humpback whale for quite a long time. Fabien was in the water with us and if we need help he was there, you have to be a strong swimmer for this tour. I got some incredible video footage on our GoPro9! I would highly recommend doing this tour with Fabien and it was worth every penny.
3. Watch A Polynesian Dance Performance At InterContinental Le Moana Bora Bora
Everyday they have Happy Hour at InterContinental Le Moana Bora Bora at 6pm – Buy One Drink & Get One Free! While there for Happy Hour, we were lucky enough to catch a show. The night really takes off when the Polynesian performers play music and sing, while a lively Bora Bora traditional dance team – dressed in ornate costumes – tells stories through lively dancing.
4. Go to Matira Beach – The only public beach in Bora Bora and it’s FREE!
We’ve traveled a lot and seen many beautiful beaches, and this one tops them all. It’s also a perfect spot for a sunset over the water! There’s tons of restaurants nearby to enjoy the views.
Just sit there and watch the mini faded shades of turquoise was a treat. At the time I was there it was very peaceful and quiet. A true tropical dream!
