Why Honeymoon Here

Romantics come from around the world to marvel at the lush tropical slopes and valleys, with Mount Otemanu standing proud in the background.
The sandy white beaches serve as a playground for tropical colourful fish, which animate the coral gardens as giant manta rays glide past. Easily a contender for the most beautiful island in the world, Bora Bora is the centre of the romantic universe.
What to Do
Bursting with diverse marine life, there is no limit to the underwater activities. Enjoy neon-lit lagoon waters with unending days of exploration through snorkelling and diving.
