Honeymoon in Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Bora Bora is one of most beautiful places we have ever visited. We enjoyed stunning and peaceful, sunrises and sunsets. We woke up in the morning, with the sounds of the birds, and we jumped right into the lagoon’s warm, clear, salty water to swim.

There were unforgettable views of the sky, which was full of thousands of stars.  Sometimes we could even see shooting stars. It was like a dream.





Bora Bora is the best place to go with your loved one. It is a true paradise, with bungalows over the turquoise waters, and calm lagoons, one of the best places, in the world to scuba dive and snorkel.

Here you can also swim with sharks and stingrays. After booking with the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, the night before, we woke up, early in the morning and went to the boat, which was already waiting for us, at our hotel’s dock.

We’ve never been so close to a shark before, until our trip to Bora Bora. The sharks are called  Blacktip Reef. They like to swim in shallow waters, and can be found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. They are not dangerous to humans.

It was a great experience, swimming with stingrays, sharks and a variety of tropical fish in Bora Bora.
