Often referred locally as just Bora,the French Polynesian island of Bora Bora is the most beautiful island in the world as author James Michener called it in his autobiography entitled "The World Is My Home".
It is no wonder why tourism is so out of control in Bora Bora, but it's all relevent... The island of Bora Bora, which is 160 miles northwest of Papeete has an area of almost 12 miles, which although is a far cry from Cancun and Florida, it can be engulfed that much faster by tourists. This is why it's so important why you should employ the services of a travel consultant to guide you through the best when and how to arrive.
Bora Bora is best known for black pearl boutiques, high end restaurants lining the road south of Vaitape, snorkeling near Matira Point, and clear blue-green waters. Do you recall the beautiful backdrop in Vince Vaugn's "Couples Retreat"? The movie was filmed at the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort.
