Romance. It rises from the velvet blues of the deep water up through the softer hues of the lagoon and into the air that surrounds Bora Bora. Its touch on the sea breeze tingles the skin. And its power fills each beat of the heart. A brief 50-minute flight from The Islands of Tahiti or Moorea, Bora Bora, with a lagoon resembling an artist’s palette of bright blues and greens, is love at first sight. Romantics from around the world celebrate this island where the lush tropical slopes and valleys of Mount Otemanu blossom with hibiscus, while palm-covered motu circle the illuminated lagoon like a delicate necklace.
Perfect white-sand beaches give way to azure waters where tropical-colored fish animate the coral gardens and giant manta rays glide leisurely past. This could easily be defined as the center of the romantic universe, where luxury resorts and spas dot the island with overwater bungalows, thatched-roof villas and a fabled ambience. Simply put, Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
