Bora Bora North Side
Bora Bora

This photo was taken on the northeast side of Bora Bora.  You can see the lagoon to the north, and the road on the hill where we took the photo.  You can see the electric bikes we used to circumnavigate the island.  A great way to travel around this beautiful place.  The view of the moutain is fabulous here!

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").
