If a trip to Bora Bora is the next thing on your calendar, you are in for a treat. There are few places on earth that can provide so many wonders all at once. Of course, Bora Bora may not be the cheapest vacation you take, but you will love the fine dining, luxurious resorts, and sleeping a few feet above the water.

Bora Bora might as well be a small piece of heaven on earth, and you will consider yourself the luckiest person to witness it. Below you will find top four things to enjoy in Bora Bora. We will skip the bungalows because they come with the package.

Leopard Rays Trench

There is nothing more beautiful than coming in close contact with nature. You have probably gone snorkeling before, and perhaps you know how it is like to swim with the fish. However, have you ever swum with the leopard rays? It may be frightening at first, but it will give you the chills. It is scary and fascinating at the same time.

There are very few places on earth where you can get so close and personal with a ray, so if excitement is something you are looking for, then the Leopard Rays Trench is one of the things you must try when you are in Bora Bora.

Mount Otemanu

Mount Otemanu is a remnant of an ancient volcano, but its beauty is incredible. It rises more than 2,400 feet above the blue lagoon, and if you find accommodation close, you can wake up to it every morning. It is a beautiful view, and although you cannot climb it, surely you can appreciate its beauty from afar.

What you want to see is the sunsets over Mount Otemanu. The scenery is never the same as the previous day, and the changing colors will leave you in awe. You cannot miss it for anything.

Matira Beach

If you are looking for some peace and quiet, Matira Beach is perfect. You do not have to deal with waves, which makes this place perfect for people who cannot swim or do not know to snorkel. It is ideal for just sitting around in the water. You can also go hiking around the beach.The trails are beautiful and provide relaxation. The soft sand and the blue sea offer beautiful scenery, and you will enjoy every second you are there.

Bora Bora Lagoonarium

Last but not least, Bora Bora Lagoonarium is the ideal place for snorkeling. The sea is filled with colorful fish, and the experience is fantastic. If you are lucky, you can see a shark, but you do not have to be afraid. They are mostly harmless if you leave them alone. But overall, the place is paradise, and you cannot miss it if you go to Bora Bora. It is a live aquarium where you are allowed to swim with the fish. It does not get any better than that.

Bora Bora should be on everyone’s bucket list. It is a magical place where you can live amazing experiences. However, make sure that you have the proper documentation when you go there. While many tourists do not require a tourist visa (especially if they stay there less than a month) you are required to have a passport that is valid for at least six months from your arrival date. For less hassle, you can find passport photos online.
