round, it’s certainly easy to see what all the fuss is about. In fact, you can get an idea of just how coveted and exclusive this area is simply by attempting to buy anything on the island.

Flying into Tahiti and Bora Bora we're both beautiful experiences. Staying in Tahiti overnight was a little worrisome. I would definitely recommend not traveling alone and to research what neighborhood your hotel is in. Taking the smaller plane into Bora Bora and then being whisked off via boat to your resort was magical and second to nothing. I spent more money on fish food than I did my own food hahaha. The snorkeling and scuba diving were amazing and there were some fish that would literally eat out of the palm of your hand. I went on an Excursion where we were able to pet a nurse shark and swim with lemon sharks. The French Polynesian people are very happy to please and sing and play music for you to make sure you have an authentic Adventure. I look forward to going back.

There are no words. Without a doubt this is the most beautiful place on earth. I saw fish more colorful than a rainbow. Where life is still slow but growing with tourism.
While in french Polynesia, visit Moorea and Huahine also.

Spent an amazing 10 nights with my beautiful bride in French Polynesia. Started with 2 nights in Tahiti, 4 nights in Moorea, and finished with 4 nights in Bora Bora.
In terms of natural beauty it went from good to better and finally Bora Bora was the best.
Our trip was made relaxing due to easyTahiti.com (Tiffany) and their organization skills and familiarity with the islands.
Our package included all our accomodations and importantly, all our transfers from island to island.
We were provided an itinerary for our trip that detailed all pertinent information which allowed us to enjoy the sun and not worry about confirming details or setting up transfers.
We stayed at the Intercontinental in Tahiti, Hilton in Moorea, and Four Seasons in Bora Bora.
Predictably the Four Seasons had top notch service and was the nicest. Had a great time in Moorea as there was coral everywhere around the bungalows which allowed us to feed fish and sharks right from our patio (no coral around bungalows in Four Seasons Bora Bora).
Our favourite part of the Intercontinental was the infinity pool with a swim up bar. Since it was our honeymoon we were going to have a great time regardless; however, the stunning views, relaxed feel, and great local dishes truly made it a trip we will never forget.

Best Regards,
David

This sigh-inducingly stunning island, which is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef, is spot-on for a never-to-be-forgotten proposal destination. Book a sailing trip on the glistening turquoise waters, or find a quiet spot on one of the cake-mix-soft, too-white pristine beaches for a paradise-style moment.

I'm living on this island and I'm always surprised by the beauty of unbelievable Sunsets we have, the clear waters we enjoy for snorkeling, the general atmosphere of tahitian style life with local music & food, party with friends & family...

When you see all of the beautiful photos of Tahiti more than likely it is Bora Bora you are staring at. The island is home to the over-the-water bungalows, best spas, and fabulous food. There is virtually no nightlife except for 'Dirty Nellies' a bar that has been there forever! Take a water taxi and explore, swim with sharks and dive off of your bungalow.

Pictures can't do this place justice; its crystal blue waters are breathtaking and indescribably beautiful. Yes, it's expensive, but it's honestly worth every penny. Splurge on an overwater bungalow...you will not regret it! It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience, though my husband and I have vowed to return every 10 years. :)

Don't stay at the capital. Not worth it. Go to Moorea or Bora Bora. BB is gorgeous but expensive. Beautiful beaches and incredible sea life. Gorgeous resorts.
