Bora Bora

Surrounded by a lagoon and barrier reef, Bora Bora is the epitome of tropical luxury. Wed at a Polynesian chapel, coral beach or aboard a catamaran, and then celebrate with coconut shell cocktails and floral crowns. You won’t be able to take your eyes off the crystal blue waters, but if you do, the exquisite tropical scenery and imposing Mount Otemanu will also take your breath away.
