The Tahitian Islands
Tahiti, Moorea & Bora Bora are only 3 of the 118 island within the 5 archipelagos of the Tahitian Islands. The mention of Tahiti conjures up a vision of idyllic island paradise – a mythical destination – secluded, tropical and lush. Crystal clear blue lagoons surrounded by soaring volcanic peaks. A melting pot of native historic culture and fine cuisine. Quite simply a cluster of brilliant island jewels, set amongst magnificent azure coloured seas.
Tahiti, home to the capital of Papeete and the main international gateway, is also known as Tamure Island or island of marinated raw fish & sweet fragrances. From the main island of Tahiti, a short ferry ride takes you across to her enchanting sister island of Moorea. This island gem is suited for any discovery whether you want to just potter about or indulge in its unforgettable marine life. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a timeless charm.
Then we have Bora Bora! It’s fair to say this island and its lagoon are of surreal beauty and fascinate visitors due to its enchanting scenery, its’ lush vegetation, and not to forget, its relaxed ambience. Bora Bora sits on one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. The stunning white sand beaches lined with coconut trees and lagoons populated with a myriad of fish and corals of amazing colours – all makes for a picture perfect scene. Some say Bora Bora is undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific – her beauty unrivalled and her fame unwavering.
Bora Bora is renowned for its overwater bungalows – many of these being lavish floating villas with glass floors that supply a window to the lagoon life below. Imagine the peaceful haven of your over-water bungalow watching the unforgettable sunsets from lounging on your own private deck and receiving room service via outrigger canoe.
Once seen, Bora Bora is never forgotten. From the day you arrive until the moment you depart, you will be in awe of how her soaring mountain peaks, turquoise lagoon and luxuriant overwater bungalows somehow look even more spectacular than the pictures.
