Bora Bora

We hired some electric bikes for our tour around the main island of Bora Bora.  This island really earns its reputation with beautiful sights in all directions.  We stopped at this place on the northwest side of the main island with great views of the water, trees, and hillsides.  There was a nice breeze at this point, and the trees provided some shade to cool off.  Although, the electric bikes helped a lot, we still pedaled some, and got baked in the sun.

More About Bora Bora

Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the Pacific Ocean. The island, located about 230 kilometres (140 mi) 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 at 727 metres (2,385 ft). The original name of the island in the Tahitian language might be better rendered as Pora Pora, meaning "First Born"; an early transcription found in 18th- and 19th century accounts, is Bolabolla (or "Bollabolla").
