tVisitors come to Bora Bora to experience a glimpse of paradise. The French Polynesian island in the South Pacific is known for its turquoise lagoon waters, stunning views of dormant volcano Mount Otemanu and lush tropical surroundings. What better way to experience Bora Bora than taking part in outdoor activities? Here are our top five recommendations.



Bora Bora boasts an array of marine life. Spend time snorkeling through the lagoon to get an up-close view of the various fish. Many properties offer snorkel gear. The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora includes complimentary snorkel gear in all bungalows.



Explore the Valley of the Kings on the main island in Bora Bora. Here you’ll take in spectacular views of Mount Otemanu and the island’s lush greenery. Consult with the concierge desk at your property for recommendations. Half- and full-day tours are most typical.


Shark and Ray Feeding

Thrill seekers, slip on your snorkeling gear and prepare for feeding time. Shark and ray feeding is a popular activity for guests of all ages. From a safe distance, watch as experienced divers feed docile sharks and rays.



For a leisurely afternoon or evening, book a sailing tour. Whether you’re interested in an intimate or party vibe, boats of all sizes are available for your needs. Talk to your hotel’s concierge team to book.



Kayaking and paddleboarding are great ways to stay active while exploring Bora Bora’s lagoon. Consult with the water activities station at your hotel for rental information.
