Bora Bora is warm all year round, so you will not have to worry about it ever being too cold for swimming. However, from December through to March is the wet season, with more rainfall, humidity, and pesky mosquitos. The most popular season runs from May to October, so expect a lot of tourists and higher prices around this time. November and April are good shoulder season months as you will still have nice weather but with fewer visitors. In May, annual events include the Tahiti Pearl Regatta featuring participants from all over the Pacific and the colourful Heiva I Bora Bora festival in July featuring traditional Polynesian costumes and events. In November, you can see the Hawaiki Nui Va'a canoe races, the Bora Bora Liquid Festival in December, and the Taurus Varua in January, one of the island's most important religious festivals.
Bora Bora is the perfect location for those seeking a secluded island getaway. You are never far from the warm tropical waters of the island's many lagoons, and there are plenty of water-based activities, such as canoeing and snorkelling to try. Besides, the many hiking and biking trails will offer you amazing views of the surrounding island. If you want to relax, there are plenty of opportunities for spa treatments, shopping trips, fine dining and more to enjoy. Bora Bora will most likely suit romantic couples, friends and solo travellers looking for a relaxing getaway, and families will also find plenty to enjoy here.
