Romantic reality begins even before touchdown as you see the translucent lagoon from the sky. Then warm smiles and fragrant flower lei greet you upon arrival. Bora Bora is renowned for its cottages above the turquoise waters with glass floors that peeks into the lagoon life. Doing almost nothing is perfectly acceptable: lounging on your private deck, rejuvenating spa treatment, and enjoying the room service. If you want to do more, visit the main island, Vaitape, for shopping and seeing the local culture; hike mountains; and do any water sports you can think of. Bora Bora’s beauty is unrivaled and you have to see it to believe it.
