Pearl of the Pacific," as baptized by Captain Cook, bears the
magic of the most beautiful island in French Polynesia. Rising
up from the ocean over three million years ago, Bora Bora in
Tahitian means "first born." One of its most striking features
is its large volcanic rock formations that tower at the center
of the island. This is an awe-inspiring backdrop for an already
breathtaking view. Bora Bora's pristine lagoon is another one
of its prized features, offering some of the most amazing snorkeling
and scuba diving adventures to be experienced anywhere in the
In this vast lagoon, there is only one navigable pass, which
faces the main village of Vaitape. More than 5,000 American
servicemen were stationed on Bora Bora during World War II.
The G.I.s constructed the airport that is still in use today
and also inspired the romantic musical, South Pacific.
