    We stay at the Intercontinental Thalasso and have the fortune that our over the water bungalow face Mount Otemanu. The views at sunrise and sunset times were beautiful.

    The Lagoonarium is a must-see. Snorkeling there was amazing. There were so many beautiful types of fish and coral- some of them endangered. My husband and I loved that there were many launching points. We also loved the fish feeding. The instructor was so knowledgable; we learned so much!

    June 2021: Currently closed. Mainly due to Covid - lack of tourist money funding it. The whole of French Polynesia just opened May 1st - they really need us tourists. Please go! Such lovely people and wonderful natural beauty. If you like the color blue, you will love this island.

    A boat ride out to a shallow that is teaming with sharks and rays. The guide will feed them and they are so friendly (rays) and will let you touch their back. Because of the shallow water it is also excellent foe snorkeling where you can see the rays and sharks clearly underwater.

    The wife and I wanted to do some hiking while in Bora Bora and this seemed to fit the bill. The hike is as challenging as advertised. We took the road by Hina Pearls. Lots of time on all fours because of steepness of the terrain. Multiple ropes to help negotiate the pitch.

    The All trails app was crucial for us in terms of not getting lost. Would have been way more challenging without it. We had an awesome time but if you're not in good shape then this probably isn't the best idea. Took us about 2.5 hours up and 2 hours down.

    To see Alain’s work either you have to stay at one of the resorts which exhibit his paintings or you visit his home studio in Vaitape. We were lucky enough to meet him and his partner Karen with an easily arranged appointment (via email). His work is splendid, the photos on the internet do NOT do it justice. When you see a Despert in person, you will fall in love with the work. His techniques for adding texture are the real show-stealers. He mixes enamels and acrylics, and divides canvases in unique ways. He captured my eye and stole my heart. And his backstory! Painting is a second career, he went from zero painting to renowned artist in quite a short time. His work is in collections of the rich and famous and museums. You will want to own a Despert. The visit to the house was a great juxtaposition to the the rest of Bora Bora.

    Located downtown Bora Art Upstairs is , upstairs for thinking , the creativity in this room creates a true artists impression of Bora Bora and its surrounds. Well worth a visit on the red carpet!

    We met John on out honeymoon at the St Regis and after viewing his artwork we knew we needed something to commemorate such an unbelievable experience. We attended his viewing and the hardest part about working with him was choosing which piece(s) we wanted. Not only were his pricing more than fair but his service far exceeded our expectations. I could write a novel on all the reasons you should work with John and get some of his art in your own home but ill leave you with just do it because you will be more than pleased that you did.

    Thanks again for everything John!!!

    Difficult and challenging place to reach due to steep access and poor trackways, but worth the effort. Interesting experience and sobering to see in this idylic location the reminants of the old WW2 coastal guns.
