15 Amazing Things to Do in Bora Bora

The cobalt blue waters of Bora Bora lure you in with their mesmerizing beauty. And the iconic overwater bungalows are so alluring that it’s hard to tear yourself away to check out activities.

The island and its surrounding necklace of motus are so steeped in beauty that all you want to do is chill on the deck of your bungalow and drinking in the views of Mt Otemanu.

Snorkel with sharks

These little fellows aren’t dangerous to humans.  Side-by-side with other snorkelers, we hung on to a rope and watched as a guide threw out chum.


Taking a biking adventure is one of the most fun things to do in Bora Bora. You can easily circumnavigate the island on two wheels. So rent a bike and hit the road!

Bicycle around Bora Bora


Chill at Matira Beach

It’s a public beach, so you can enjoy hanging out along the shores and go for a swim. The waters are gentle and the sandy entry is easy.


Take a Bora Bora jeep tour

On a guided tour, you’ll bounce along bumpy roads in your tough little jeep on a trip around the volcanic island. We had to hang on tightly to the roll bars to avoid getting tossed around.


Snorkel in the Lagoonarium

You’ll spy turtles, sting rays, eagle rays and sharks. Tropical fish like parrot fish, butterfly fish and jackfish swim around you as you watch in awe.


Hike up Mount Pahia

The hike up Mount Pahia is difficult and steep. You hike through thick jungle, and there are five short, and especially steep, sections where fixed ropes are attached to help you.
