Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Apr 24, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


Bora Bora, the iconic island of French Polynesia was our incredible destination for the day. Its fame is surpassed only by its beauty. Dominated by a high central peak, rising from the deep blue, Bora Bora is considered one of the most scenic of the Society Islands. Surrounded by shallow and deep reefs and a bright, almost hypnotic turquoise lagoon, the island was formed around 7 million years ago and inhabited by the first Polynesians. Travelling by 4x4WD or enjoying the “Le Truck” experience, we had the chance to discover the island’s insurmountable beauty. We also had the unique opportunity to enjoy its clear, clement waters from our own private motu beach. Paradise is here!
