Fresh from Rangiroa, we arrived back in Papeete. Our flight for Bora Bora would only leave the next day. So we found ourselves walking through the town once more, this time finding some funny places.
The morning came, and before we knew it, we were in a plane overlooking beautiful Bora Bora!!
We landed, and were greeted by deep blue waters and a gorgeous view. Not many airports I know are in such a pretty place.
From our boat we could see how unique the water around Bora Bora is. It truly has every shade of blue you can possibly imagine. So pretty! As we approached our resort, located on a private island, we could hardly contain our enthusiasm. How wonderful to stay here and relax after 2.5 months of travelling!
We were led to our home for the next 5 days; an overwater bungalow!
First thing we did after settling in, was getting into the crystal clear water for a snorkel. This resort has the best reef in Bora Bora, and when we found that out while booking, our decision was made:P
On our first snorkel, we already found a few cool fish!
We got back to our room, and then set out again for the sunset, and a lovely dinner.
In the morning, we discovered that we have a baby house-shark! Or Sharky, as we nicknamed him. He cruises by every morning and afternoon!
Over the next days, it became a ritual to start the day with a snorkel around the island.
The afternoons were spent relaxing on our deck, in the bungalow, or on the island’s pretty beach.
What’s great about the resort is that each day, we received a new treat. Be it pareos, a manicure, a yoga class, or a pearl. Really thoughtful!
There are lots of fish on the reef behind our island. We found that if we brought food, they would all come and swim around us.
Later in the afternoon, we took the boat to the mainland. I picked a free pearl from the resort’s pearl shop, and we went on a walk to Marara beach.
On our final day, we got breakfast served at our bungalow.
We received the funniest check-out reminder ever:
After one last snorkel…
…and some vitamine K…
…we got back on the boat to go to the airport. Goodbye Bora Bora!
