Trip to Bora Bora

Bora Bora island will make you feel love at first sight. With ocean views  of turquoise waters resembling an artist’s palette of bright blues and greens, romantics from around the world appreciate Bora Bora’s, lush, tropical vegetation circling the perimeter of the island and the valleys of Mount Otemanu blossom with hibiscus.

The main island, located about 230 kilometres (125 nautical miles) northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano, rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu; the highest point is at 727 m (2,385 ft). Bora Bora is part of the Commune of Bora-Bora, which also includes the atoll of Tūpai. The languages spoken in Bora Bora are Tahitian and French. However, due to the high tourism population, many natives of Bora Bora have learned to speak English.

Bora Bora is a major international tourist destination, famous for its seaside (and even offshore) luxury resorts. The major settlement, Vaitape, is on the western side of the main island, opposite the main channel leading into the lagoon. Produce of the island is mostly limited to what can be obtained from the sea and from the plentiful coconut trees, which were historically of economic importance for the production of copra.

The Story

Tahiti has a long and rich history. The islands were first settled by migrating Polynesians as early as 500BC. They were later discovered by European explorers during the 16th century and eventually colonized by France. Now officially known as French Polynesia, Tahiti is an autonomous overseas country of the French Republic.

Tahitian Culture

Tahitians inherited a rich and vibrant culture from their ancient ancestors. Polynesian artistry—which includes weaving, woodcarving, and tattooing—is grounded in the mythology of that heritage. Each sacred tradition tells a colorful story about life, love, and their enduring relationship with nature.

People

Tahitians are the proud guardians of their cultural heritage and therefore represent the beauty of timeless tradition. They love to celebrate their customs through artwork, song, and dance. These warm, welcoming Polynesians possess an innocent and carefree spirit. Their philosophy, aita pea pea, meaning, “not to worry,” is truly the Tahitian way of life.

Textiles

Before the arrival of European missionaries, Polynesian clothing was traditionally made from tapa cloth, which consisted of dried pandanus leaves, coconut fibers, and breadfruit bark. The local women at that time wore one single garment, called a pareo, wrapped around their waist. Today, this colorful article of clothing, like a sarong, is made from two yards of dyed fabric and can be worn by both men and women in a variety of ways.

The missionaries not only introduced fabric to the islands, but also taught the local women the art of patchwork. Today, these matriarchs, affectionately known as Tahitian “mamas,” sew colorful quilts known as tifaifai. Each tapestry is unique, made from handmade floral appliqué designs meant to reflect their inherent love of nature. Now a treasured wedding gift, it is wrapped around the couple during a traditional Polynesian wedding ceremony.

Dance

Tahitian dance is the most authentic reflection of Polynesian culture. This extraordinary display of passion and vitality was once linked to all aspects of island life, including prayer, celebration, welcoming and storytelling. The signature tamure, or fast hip shaking motion, has become an unmistakable trademark of this captivating art form, matched only by the resounding rhythms of the Tahitian drums.

Cuisine

Across the boulevard from Le Marché is the waterfront promenade, Vai’ete Square, where the famous food trucks known as Les Roulottes open nightly to serve a range of affordable meals. Snacks include Chinese food, French crepes, steak sandwiches, pommes frites, fresh fish, and pizza. The food and atmosphere are both excellent.

The signature dish in Tahiti is poisson cru, or raw fish. The flavor defines the essence of the destination—sweet, tender, refreshing, and exotic. It consists of raw tuna marinated in lime juice and mixed with a delicious blend of diced vegetables and coconut milk.

Local Currency: The Pacific Franc
In the French Polynesian Islands, including Bora Bora, they use the Pacific Franc which has the code XPF. If you go to a currency conversion website like XE you will be able to get an accurate rate for today. As a rough guide $1USD is about 90XPF. U.S. currency may be accepted as direct payment in hotels, restaurants and large shops, but will get a low rate of exchange. There are a few ATM machines available on the main islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora, which you may use with your debit or major credit cards.  You’ll certainly want to have some cash on hand for small purchases and the occasional tip.  US Dollars are not widely accepted in the islands; therefore, local currency is best.

Weather in November

The last month of the spring, November, is another warm month in Bora Bora, with temperature in the range of an average low of 24.6°C (76.3°F) and an average high of 29.4°C (84.9°F).
