Luxtripper’s travel guide will highlight all of the activities that no trip to Bora Bora or surrounding islands would be complete without.

Tahiti is one of the world's most dazzling destinations - I know you'll love it as much as I do!

Bora Bora

The most famous of the French Polynesian islands certainly doesn’t disappoint visitors. Holidays in Bora Bora are the dream, but nobody wants to travel all this way and not experience the best that the island has to offer.

It would be unthinkable to travel to Bora Bora and not explore the wondrous shores. For an island tour with an adventurous twist, you should definitely sign yourself up for a jet-ski tour. Take to the seas and explore this haven like never before, gaining a deeper insight into the fascinating culture and history, all the while gazing upon awe-inspiring views of the lagoons and the imperious Mount Otemanu.

Mountains and Markets

We wouldn’t blame you for feeling that a distant glimpse of the incredible Mount Otemanu simply isn’t enough. Luckily, most Bora Bora resorts allow you to book hiking excursions, which will see you scaling steep gradients and trekking through incomparable lush landscapes to reach unbelievable heights. You’ll feel on top of the world afterwards!

Anybody looking for a taste of the city while on this paradise island will find it in Vaitape. The largest city on Bora Bora, it is populated by just under 5000 people, which is actually half of the entire island’s population. It’s here that you’ll be able to buy unique trinkets for all of your friends back home and, of course, no trip to Bora Bora would be complete without perusing the coveted black pearls.

Recommended Hotel – Conrad Bora Bora Nui

To experience the height of luxury in the world’s most desired holiday destination, the Conrad Bora Bora Nui is a no-brainer. Surrounded by incredible corals for a sublime scuba diving experience, home to an extraordinary range of magnificent restaurants and dazzling views of Mount Otemanu, you’ll never want to leave the opulence and incomparable beauty of this luxury hotel.


While almost all of the islands in this region are world-renowned for their pristine white sand beaches and shimmering turquoise waters, Moorea has far much more to offer than just astounding beauty. 

Thrill-lovers wondering what to do in Bora Bora need look no further than an adrenaline-charged ATV Tour. Sit in the driver’s seat of your own spectacular tour around this picturesque island, discovering hidden dirt tracks and taking in magnificent views while the tropical breeze rushes through your hair. Follow your knowledgeable guide to all of the best viewing spots for a truly unique insight into the history and culture of this island paradise. Don’t worry about having to arrange travel to different pick up points; most Bora Bora resorts will take care of that for you!

Dive Beneath the Waves

If you’d prefer to spend your trip to Bora Bora moving at a more relaxed pace, you could always venture into the sparkling lagoon waters and discover the multitudes of tropical marine creatures that swim below. Get incomparable views of the vibrant seascape or set your heart racing with a shark diving excursion. You’ll see an endless array of spectacular marine life, all just a short distance from the stunning coast.

Recommended Hotel - The Hilton Mo’orea

Boasting breath-taking overwater villas, awe-inspiring lush gardens and quintessential Polynesian décor, it’s no wonder that Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa is one of the region’s most desirable hotels. Whether it’s beach or overwater, your villa will be everything you could dream of and more. Dine on an eclectic range of international cuisines and treat yourself to rejuvenating sumptuous spa treatments while on the holiday of a lifetime in Moorea.


French Polynesia’s largest island is filled to the brim with exciting opportunities for discovery. Anybody wondering what to do in Tahiti is sure to find something to satisfy their tastes on this dreamy island haven.

Discover awe-inspiring waterfalls hidden in lush forestry with the most picturesque hike you’ll ever experience. Tahiti is teeming with waterfalls and you’ll be spoilt for choice when choosing which one to visit. Trek through jungles that seem too beautiful to be real and gaze upon one of nature’s most miraculous occurrences. Why not see how many of the waterfalls you can tick off your bucket list throughout the duration of your Bora Bora holiday?

If you get tired of the immaculate diamond-white sand beaches (if that’s even possible) and want a change of scenery, Tahiti can offer you black sand beaches as well, just because one kind of sand wasn’t enough. And let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be right to travel to Bora Bora and not experience each and every dazzling beach possible, right?

Recommended Hotel - InterContinental Tahiti

The InterContinental Tahiti is a truly spectacular destination. Discover tropical lagoons and picture-perfect landscapes all conveniently located near the heart of beautiful Tahiti! This dazzling resorts offers you the best of everything, perfect for tagging onto the beginning or end of a Bora Bora holiday.
