French Polynesia

Welcome to Nunue

City description  

There are many earthly paradises to be found in the Pacific Ocean, but none are like Bora Bora Island, one of the Society Islands in French Polynesia. Making up part of the group of islands poetically named the Leeward islands, Bora Bora is well-deserving of its nickname of "Pearl of the Pacific".

EIndeed, with its lagoon where turquoise and crystal clear waters waltz in harmony with the endless pristine beaches, set off by an emerald vegetation, arriving at Bora Bora feels like a waking dream. An ecstatic beauty that can, of course, be discovered as you head for the town of Nunu'e which, with the mountainous island of To'opua opposite, feels like a little piece of paradise, far away from the rest of the world. However, a stay in Bora Bora doesn't just mean isolation and quiet, since the island, and particularly Nunu'e, offer their visitors a wealth of activities and things to do. Once you've mastered the relaxation part, how about going for an afternoon dive? With its seabeds made so exceptional by the lagoon you can enjoy the biodiversity that's characteristic of French Polynesia in all its splendor, as you swim next to a manta ray or some Napoleon fish. And if the sea isn't your thing, you can have a go at more fun activities like kite surfing, canoeing and jet skiing. More fun still, leave the beaten track to explore the island on a 4x4 safari and discover the island's unique natural spectacle, as well as its remains from World War II, when Bora Bora served as a support base for the US military. A walk that stirs the emotions, to be finished off perfectly with a fresh fruit juice at the summit of the island for an amazing finale. Bora-Bora and Nunu'e don't leave anyone indifferent. Back on land, stretch out your toes as you lie on a deckchair looking out to the horizon at sunset. Stir your refreshing cocktail and simply enjoy being on the other side of the world…
