Islands thousands of miles from anywhere. Jungle-clad peaks surrounded by perfect pearl sand and translucent water, with luxury resorts as dazzling as the islands themselves.

"You’ll exhaust the dictionary looking for ways to describe Bora Bora; suffice to say it’s every bit as iridescent as when James Cook called it the ‘Pearl of the Pacific’."

Bora Bora. The name alone conjures up images of the bluest skies above turquoise seas lapping onto pristine white shores. But whatever picture you have, the reality is always better. While it is expensive, it’s definitely worth every penny, with all the luxury trappings you know you don’t need but just can’t live without.

So perfect it’s hard to believe it actually exists, Bora Bora is legendary not only for its seductive loveliness, jagged peaks and aqua lagoons, but also as an indulgent paradise for pampered pleasure-seekers.

  2. Catch of the Day

    Catch of the Day

    French Polynesia is renowned for its diving… but it’s also one of the world’s prime spots for deep sea fishing. The sheltered waters off Bora Bora, for example, have yielded all sorts of record catches including marlin, yellowfin tuna, sailfish and wahoo.

  3. Pearls of the Pacific
