Bora Bora in French Polynesia – Amazing!
Bora Bora, a small Pacific island northwest of Tahiti, is surrounded by islets with sandy shores and one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, with a turquoise blue color protected by a coral reef.
This island emerged from the waters 13 million years ago, being an ancient volcano that today sits on a lagoon that sports a gradient of blue tones that are almost supernatural. It is one of the most impressive places on the planet.
The Otemanu, Pahia and Hue mountains dominate this spectacular landscape with sandy beaches of all sizes.
