Port of Call - Bora Bora

Bora Bora is a name commonly whispered when talk of exotic international tourist destinations comes up. Famous for its aqua-centric luxury resorts, this island is located among the Society Islands of the French Polynesia.

Surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef, it is picture perfect all year round and boasts everything an island destination should.Volcanic peaks lie dormant in the background, cascading down to glorious green rainforests that meet pure white sands and aquamarine waters. The beaches are lined with coconut palms and speckled with villages filled with happy and playful children.

The island is also abundant with history as it acted as an American naval base between 1942 and 1946. History buffs could spend weeks exploring the intricate remnants that remain from this time.

No matter what you´re after, whether it´s relaxation, adventure or history, there is something here for all.
