If you really want to get away from it all, you can book a trip to the Tahitian Islands, one of the most beautiful and remote places on the face of the earth. If you want to get a little bit further away, however, you can visit the nearby island of Bora Bora instead of the more easily accessible island of Tahiti. Not only is it a remote area of the world, you will be able to visit someplace that is extremely popular with many celebrities.

Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful areas on the face of the earth. It is a tropical paradise that has become a favorite of many celebrities because of its beauty, available luxury and limited access. Some of the many stars that make this particular island their vacation home include John Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Sharon Stone and Vin Diesel. Of course, there are many other celebrities that visit the island on a regular basis.

If the thought of enjoying your vacation where the celebrities also enjoy getting away, Bora Bora is certainly able to take care of all of your vacation needs. Not only is the island itself beautiful, it has some of the most fantastic luxury resorts that are available in the world. After all, many of the celebrities would not be getting away to a place that did not offer them everything that they could possibly want.

So, make Bora Bora your perfect, remote island getaway. While you’re there, you may be able to see some of the stars. More than likely, however, you will be so busy enjoying yourself and living in the lap of luxury that you won’t have time to notice.

What to Do in Bora Bora

Bora Bora is a lagoon island and is considered one of the most beautiful locations not only in French Polynesia but in the entire world. Despite the fact it is one of the most commercialized of all destinations in Tahiti, it retains its natural and cultural heritage and beauty.

The offshore islands of Bora Bora provide you with magnificent views and cruises allow you to see the lagoon whilst enjoying wonderful food and snorkeling with the colorful reef fish. Sharks, rays and eels are commonly seen here too as can dolphins at certain times of the year. Scuba diving is popular here and Bora Bora is considered to be one of the world’s best diving destinations.

There are some tiny islands to the north of Bora Bora and on them you will find the Pearl Beach Resort as well as the local airport. This spot is great for snorkeling and swimming. Private Island Lodge can provide you with an island virtually to yourself and is well worth a visit!

The eastern reef of Bora Bora contains some of the longest stretches of beaches to be found. Some are miles long and remarkably free of humans. There are however some large resorts in ideal locations such as the Le Meridien Resort that has 100 bungalows with awe inspiring views of the bay and beach. Sea turtles use this bay as do many fish.

The Lagoonarium is a man made attraction where animals like sting rays, manta rays and eagle rays are bred. They are released into the ocean once they are mature and this is an important conservation project that is assisted by the funds from visiting tourists, so make sure you pay them a visit and support this very worthwhile cause.

If you love powerful marine animals then take a visit to the Shark and Ray Watching Excursion. A canoe tour takes you around the island where you can watch sharks and rays feeding. Watch from the boat or even jump in and snorkel amongst the marine life.

Bora Bora is a popular destination with good reason; it thrives with activity, culture, nature and great food and is an ideal vacation spot.
