Cheap Flights to Bora Bora

This tiny volcanic island in French Polynesia is a luxurious wonderland devoted to indulgence and relaxation. Bora Bora has been called “The Pearl of the Pacific” and with its deep turquoise lagoon, pristine white sand beaches and beautiful sunsets, Bora Bora is a dream destination which a handful of lucky tourists make their own each year.

Flights Bora Bora

The most common flight to Bora Bora is through the Island of Tahiti which is eight hours from Los Angeles. Fa’a’a International Airport (PPT) is located just three miles outside of Papeete, and that’s where you’ll catch your flight on to Bora Bora. Air Tahiti is the only airline to service Bora Bora, operating approximately 5 daily flights to the island.

The 50 minute flight from Papeete to Moto Mute is one of the most beautiful you will ever experience. Bora Bora Airport (BOB), also known as Moto Mute Airport, is actually located on a tiny islet. Your journey is nearly over: you just need to catch the free ferry to main island of Bora Bora.

Stuff to do in Bora Bora

Bora Bora is an experience in itself, and you’ll get the most out of your visit if you don’t overplan. Wander the beaches, treat yourself to a spa where tropical fish swim beneath the glass floor, or take a helicopter tour to take in the fully glory of the island.

Bora Bora is teeming with opportunities to enjoy close encounters with marine life, from the friendly manta rays to schools of tamed fish. The very brave can go on shark feeding trips. If that’s not enough adventure for you, hiking, snorkeling, parasailing, scuba diving tours, and many other activities are available.

Advice for Tourists Visiting Bora Bora

Travelers from the US, Canada and Japan are not required to have a visa. You’ll need to make sure that your passport will be valid for at least six months past your vacation dates and be ready to produce return tickets.

The two main languages are French and Tahitian, but most local people who deal with tourists have a basic working knowledge of English. The currency here is the French Pacific Franc. US dollars are accepted, but it’s best to travel with some of both.

Bora Bora has two seasons: dry and wet. The peak tourist season of May through October sees temperatures in the high 80s. If you’re happy to take the chance of slightly lower temperatures for lower prices and smaller crowds, try April and November. The least popular time to visit is at the end of December through to March.

Your best bet for your best price is to plan ahead and try to book your flight six months to year out from your travel dates. For more savings, try Skyscanner’s free hotel price comparison tool.
