From London to Vaitape Motu-Mute

Of all the beautiful islands that make up French Polynesia, Bora Bora is perhaps the one that most resembles paradise. And what’s even better is that Bora Bora has a range of accommodation – over-the-water bungalows, rooms with peak and garden views – to suit all budgets. 

Bora Bora is dominated by two peaks, Mount Otemanu and Mount Pahia, which loom over the stunning blue lagoon. The beaches are soft and sandy, the vegetation lush and green, and the clear waters teeming with life.

The favoured activity on Bora Bora is, surprise, surprise, to soak up the sun on the coconut-tree lined beaches, but if that gets a little dull, visitors can explore the interior of the island or spend some time in the Lagoonarium where they can swim with sting rays, sea turtles and reef sharks.

Bora Bora climate

As in the rest of the Society Islands, Bora Bora has a tropical climate. There are two seasons, wet and dry. The wet season runs from November to April with heavy rainfall and hot temperatures reaching 30 C (86 F). Humidity levels are high during this time. February and March are the hottest season, and May through October is the dry season. Temperatures are slightly cooler at 24-28 C (74-82 F) and rainfall is minimal.

Getting around Bora Bora

From the airport on Motu Mute, guests are ferried to the port village of Vaitape either by private motorboat or shuttle. Helicopter transfer is also available for guests staying at certain resorts. Transport to resorts should be planned in advance.

There aren’t many taxis on Bora Bora and the public transport system consists of Le Truck which offers a limited service. In the evenings some restaurants will transport back to your resort. Renting a car or a scooter offers the greatest freedom. There are also bike rentals and boat rentals for trips to the outlying islets.

What is good to know if travelling to Bora Bora?

  • Matira Beach is the only public-access white-sand beach on Bora Bora. It stretches for more than 1km (.6 miles) and is dotted with beach resorts. It gets very busy during the weekend. 
  • There are more than 40 ancient altars or Marae in Bora Bora’s interior. They are ancient religious sites where human sacrifice was carried out. Marae Fare-Opu is one of the most interesting, due to its turtle petroglyphs. 
  • The Guns of Bora Bora make for an interesting tour. The now-rusted guns date from the Second World War years when Bora Bora, due to its strategic position in the South Pacific, was a stronghold of the US Army.

When is the best time to fly to Bora Bora?

Peak Season:  May to October – the dry season – is the high season. Temperatures are a pleasant 24-28 C (74-82 F)  and rain is rare. Heiva is month-long cultural festival that takes place in July. The school holidays are also busy times to visit Bora Bora and you may face stiff competition for lodgings. Off Season:  The wet season is generally considered to be the low season in Bora Bora. February and March in particular are considered the least pleasant months. However, if you can brave the heat, humidity and rain, you may be able to have a cheaper holiday. Prices dip during the off season.
