Bora Bora is an island which is included in the Leeward group of French Polynesia, which is located in France in the Pacific Ocean. It is located over 230 kilometers northwest of Papeete. In ancient times the island was called “Pora pora mai te pora”, meaning “created by the gods” in the local Tahitian dialect. The amazing thing about the island is that in the center of the island, there is an extinct volcano located which is rising to two peaks about 727 meters at its highest point.
Due to the location of volcano and many other excellent facilities, it has become a center of major tourist attraction. The excellent aqua-centric luxury resorts have also increased its popularity over the years. The quality of those resorts ranges from comparably cheap, basic accommodations to very luxurious and expensive places to stay. The island also has many coconut trees, which constitutes a major portion of the island production. The people are also involved in catching many fishes, oysters and shells, which also constitutes a major part of the island production. The remaining income is generated by tourist attraction. Snorkeling and scuba diving in and around the lagoon of Bora Bora are popular activities. The population of the Bora Bora Island is almost 9,000 now. Hence, if you are looking for a great place to spend your vacations, this place should be your first choice, besides the crystal clear waters and great accommodations, also weighs a lot in its favor.
