Where is Bora Bora island?

Bora Bora is located in French Polynesia in the Pacific Ocean. The map below let's you get an idea of where in the world this is:

Location of Bora Bora, part of French polynesia in the Pacific Ocean. 


Map of Bora Bora island

bora bora map of the island
This map of Bora Bora gives you an idea of the islands layout. The central larger island is where Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu are. The larger central Bora Bora island is surrounded by an Atol which includes the lagoon and barrier reef - and smaller islands, such as Motu Piti A'u and Motu Tofari, are located around the lagoon on the coral reef. It is these smaller outer lying islands where much of the hotel resort accommodation and water bungalows are located, where you can get stunning views of the central island.

This aerial shot of Bora Bora gives you something to compare the map above with and shows the landscape of the central island and surrounding islands. The strip of land in the foreground is Motu Ome, which bends on the left of the picture and forms Motu Tofari.

The islands on Bora Bora:

As you can see from the above photos - there are many smaller islands surrounding the central Bora Bora island- and below you can find out a bit more on each particular island and what resorts & beaches are found on them.


Motu piti a'au island - home of Bora Bora's best beach, Eden Beach

One of the best beaches on Bora Bora - Eden Beach. Looking towards the central Bora Bora island from Eden Beach, which is on Motu piti a'au, an island formation on the Atol that encircles the central Bora Bora island. It is this Atol coral reef which shelters the inner lagoon which you see above - giving perfect calm turquoise waters to dip into.

Motu piti a'au island

Motu piti a'au is an island formation on the Atol that encircles the central Bora Bora island. What makes Bora Bora special is the Atol that encircles the central main island. For those who don't know an Atol is a ring shaped coral reef that encircles a lagoon either forming a complete bit of land or partially covered land areas. On Motu Piti A'Au is one of the worlds best beaches - Eden Beach, along with some stunning resorts - such as the Inter Continental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa.

How to get to Bora Bora. Flights from Europe, United States & Australia

bora bora map resort beach
As you can see the small airport on Bora Bora is located to the north of the island - and flights come here from Tahiti. Below you can find out a little more info on flights to Tahiti.

The most popular flights are from either the United States (Los Angeles), Australia (Sydney/Mebourne) or New Zealand (Auckland). If you are flying from elsewhere in the world - then you would fly into one of these airports. These flights take you to Tahiti, and then it's a very short flight onwards to Bora Bora. And as you can see from the photos above - paradise awaits!

This blog post is meant mainly as an introduction to Bora Bora and the layout of the island, so that you can then find the kind of resort you like in the location that you prefer - but in summary here are some of the most well-known luxury all-inclusive resorts.

    1. Hi - I believe the photo was taken on Eden Beach. If you google Eden Beach and then view the maps tab - it will show you exactly where it is. As you will see it is on Motu piti a'au, which is the Atol bit of land surrounding the central Bora Bora island. Hope that helps!

    1. Hi - yes the Intercontinental Thalasso resort is on "Moto Piti A'au" - and a short walk away from Eden Beach. Hopefully the following link to a google map works and shows where the Intercontinental Resort is in comparison to Eden Beach https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/InterContinental+Bora+Bora+Resort+%26thalasso+Spa/@-16.5113735,-151.7151364,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x81fda639b2a452f2
