ora Bora is more than overwater bungalows and famous resorts. Many only spend time at the resorts that are located on their own private islands and do not set foot on the actual island of Bora Bora itself. When you visit Bora Bora, make it a point to visit the island. Here are some not to miss excursions, some will allow you to appreciate Bora Bora by land, through your taste buds and an alternative to luxury lodging (opt for Maitai Hotel average budget bracket):
Bora Bora ATV
Traversing the island of Bora Bora on an ATV was so much fun! There are a couple ATV companies that offer it but this one is the absolute best because it also takes you on a private property with a boutique that makes hand-painted pareo - sarongs, a private marae, and delicious fruit from the property. The views from there are also breathtaking and you just don't get that special stop with the other ATV tours.

This is the best restaurant for Happy Hour and breathtaking vistas. This restaurant is also well known for catering to celebrities from all over the world, thus attracting a constant wave of tourists but not locals because they do not get impressed by celebrities... unless it's Jason Momoa! lol
The most beautiful beach in Bora Bora where you can swim with rays right in the shallow of the pure limpid water.
