Bora Bora

— 5 nights
There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world.
Bora Bora is known for wildlife, shopping, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy the sand and surf at Matira Beach, see the vivid underwater world at Tupitipiti Point, stroll through Bora Bora Turtle Centre, and look for gifts at Arc En Ciel Bora-Bora.

To see reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Bora Bora journey planning tool.

Kolkata (Calcutta), India to Bora Bora is an approximately 30-hour combination of flight and ferry. Traveling from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Bora Bora, you'll gain 15.5 hours due to the time zone difference. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel to Maharepa.

Spanning an area of the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, French Polynesia includes 118 islands and atolls scattered across the blue ocean. White sand beaches (and pink and black) skirt rugged island peaks, while magnificent coral reefs form tranquil lagoons, dyed a startling blue and teeming with fish, eels, dolphins, rays, turtles, and sharks. The names Tahiti and Bora Bora conjure up images of private thatched bungalows built out over a lagoon, and couples silhouetted against the sunset. That said, a wide range of family-run hotels and bed and breakfasts offer less extravagant (and surprisingly affordable) experiences that take in more of the laid-back local culture.
