Have you been to Tahiti? From Papeete you can see Moorea and it is just a short trip across by ferry to the island. Bora Bora, on the other hand, is an air flight due to the distance from Papeete.
Of course, the islands speak French and the food is of the same influence but the landscape and people there are far from being French. I was told that Bora Bora is the most beautiful place on earth and all I can say is – if it isn’t the other place must be called ‘Heaven’. The main problem with French Polynesia is the cost of everything – this is due to the long distance from anywhere. They literally are stuck in the middle of the Pacific ocean.
If you want to be stunned by beauty you must go at least once in your lifetime to Bora Bora!
