When we think of Bora Bora, there’s probably a good chance that many of us think about sitting back and relaxing under the sun. However, there is so much more to see and do on the island that will give us a different way to enjoy the vacation of a lifetime.
It’s no secret that the water around Bora Bora is some of the most impressive in the world. After all, the island is surrounded by plenty of underwater wildlife that’s just waiting to be explored. From black-tipped reef sharks to parrotfish and needlefish to angelfish, there is no shortage of things to see and explore. Thankfully, you never have to venture too far from the shore to enjoy these wonders either, as the warm temperatures mean the fish are often close to home.
Feed stingrays and sharks
Want something water-based that adds a little more risk to your vacation to Bora Bora? While everything is made as safe as possible, it’s tough not to get an adrenaline rush from feeding stingrays and sharks as they swim around your legs. Be sure to ensure your tour provider is following all the guidelines when it comes to ethical interactions with the creatures and enjoy as the underwater wonders snack on raw fish.
Enjoy views of Mount Otemanu
Mount Otemanu is just one-half of an extinct volcano that sits in the middle of Bora Bora. It’s an exceptional view to enjoy from a distance as hiking is prohibited. Still, visitors are permitted to walk around the base of the volcano. Thankfully, there are so many ways to see Mount Otemanu that offer up plenty of photo opportunities.
Eat dinner on the beach
Perhaps you want a romantic way to spice up your vacation to Bora Bora? It’s something many couples aim to do and usually isn’t too hard to achieve. One of the best ways to enjoy a vacation with a difference is to take a trip down to one of the local resorts. Just about every single one on Bora Bora offers a private beach dinner. Be sure to expect to pay for the luxury, as the dinner usually costs between $300 and $500, but it’s set to be a dining experience no one will forget in a hurry.
Watch Polynesian fire dancers
There are so many traditional aspects of a vacation to Bora Bora that it can be tough to know where to start. One of the things everyone should have on their list of things to do is watching Polynesian fire dancers. They show off acrobatic moves as they twirl and throw fire around to bring the dance to life. The Tahitian fire dancers are the most famous on the island and know how to wow a crowd with their moves.
The things to do in Bora Bora that aren’t just sit back and relax mean that not only can we get up and active on our vacation, but we can enjoy one of the most beautiful places with a difference too.
