While planning your dream wedding, it’s important to remember to plan for your honeymoon as well. Even when everything goes right, your wedding day can be a stressful event. Take the edge off by planning your dream honeymoon in a romantic location like Bora Bora. Look forward to sipping some wine, kicking your feet up, and taking in some rays as you celebrate your wedded bliss.
Bora Bora is a small Pacific Island in French Polynesia and is northwest of Tahiti. It is a popular luxury vacation resort and perfect for honeymooners. Whether you’re looking to unwind and relax or to explore and take in truly breathtaking views, Bora Bora can be your dream honeymoon.
Bora Bora’s natural beauty is stunning. For those of you looking for a great view, the island offers beautiful bungalows set upon stilts that overlook the lagoon. Imagine waking up beside your loved one and being greeted by the sparkling water and warm sun.
From resorts to spas, you can spend your days and nights relaxing in a luxurious hotel suite. For those of you who enjoy swimming, overwater bungalows offer you an opportunity to plunge right into the lagoon or into your own, private pool.
For those looking for a more intimate experience, you can hide away in your own personal haven in a private beachfront villa. Whether you sleep in or rise with the sun, you’ll be greeted each day with magnificent views.
Relaxation and Recovery
Whether you’re sitting inside and enjoying the great view from your bungalow or laying out on the beach reading your favorite novel, enjoyment is only a step away. Sprawl out in the sun, or enjoy the rays in your own suite while writing your thank you notes to all your loved ones back home.
For the more adventurous souls, you can enjoy feeding the blacktip reef sharks and stingrays. After all, what better way to start your married bliss than by traveling into shark-infested waters? Worry not, for the water is only knee-deep and, while the sharks are small, the excitement is great. Many tourists claim feeding the sharks was the highlight of the trip—why not make it yours? However, if feeding sharks isn’t your idea of a romantic getaway, you can always visit the Bora Bora Lagoonarium—a natural aquarium on the island.
Get up close and personal with the beautiful aquatic life of the island either here or in the Coral Gardens and go snorkeling while enjoying the colorful array of coral that Bora Bora has to offer.
Bora Bora is home to one of two extinct volcanoes. For those who love hiking, visiting Mount Otemanu should be towards the top of your list. Scaling 2,400 feet above the lagoon, Mount Otemanu offers breathtaking views of the gorgeous island of Bora Bora and, if you’re not much of a hiker, don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to experience Mount Otemanu, whether it is on a boat ride, a 4×4 tour, or a helicopter tour.
Nothing says, “I love you” like a shared kiss on top of an extinct volcano while overlooking the beautiful island. Other options include tours on glass-bottomed boats, romantic sunset and Champagne tours, or a stroll through Bora Bora’s main city of Vaitape where you can get some casual shopping done.
Treat Your Taste Buds
If you’re a lover of fish, fruit or baked goods, Bora Bora is the place for you. Imagine having some of the freshest fish available and topping the day off with a chocolate croissant from a local bakery.
Take a trip to Villa Mahana to delight your taste buds and experience the best food Bora Bora has to offer.
For those looking to continue their beach theme into a restaurant, the famous Bloody Mary’s is the perfect restaurant to end your evening with. Enjoy delicious food while digging your feet into the soft, comfortable sand beneath you.
Unwind and enjoy cocktails outside on an overwater patio at the Lagoon Restaurant or enjoy dining while watching sharks swim beneath you through glass-tiled floors.
Start Off on the Right Foot
There’s nothing better than beginning your married life in a magical land. Whether you’re climbing extinct volcanoes, relaxing on the beach, feeding sharks, or staying in and cuddling while enjoying the incredible views, Bora Bora is a perfect honeymoon destination. Document all your photographs in your very own wedding album so in years to come you can remember your dream honeymoon.
