We have a Bora Bora card for you to look up here. Situated about 250 kilometres to the north-west of Tahiti, the islands are encircled by a large Laguna and several Motus (islands) that serve as a physical bar. Vaitape, in the centre of the isle, is the most important city with stores and market.
A 20-minute free boating service from Vaitape to Bora Bora Airport operates several daily services. The majority of the larger resort have their own boatshuttle service, which will collect you directly from the airport. While you may want to check to see if a free transportation is part of your accommodation, otherwise it may charge you to see where all the important resort locations are.
Some areas, such as the south of the isle at Pointe Matira, have shallow depth. The ones who sail to the islands have to be very carefully and navigate around the Laguna. There' s a 31 km long street on the central isle, which leads you around in a big bend.
The trip around Bora Bora lasts about 1 hours, because the velocity is low, plus riding on an isle, so what the hell? There, the archipelago is usually shallow with only a proper mound along the way. Quickp hint - The aerial views of Bora Bora Bora are amazing, take a look at a chopper ride or stop by just before the landing of the Tahiti Airplane on the Isle.
