French Polynesia

Welcome to Vaitape

City description  

With Mount Otemanu looking over it, this city embodies the dream that we've all had: an idyllic beach topped with palm trees and lush coconut trees, immensely blue lagoons and sand so fine that you can barely feel your footsteps… As the main urban enclave of Bora Bora Island, Vaitape is a reflection of the whole island: blessed by the gods.

This blessing combined with the most natural idleness, the most virtuous laziness. Let the beneficial effects of this tranquility take hold as you lie down in the shade of a tree, toes in the sand, waiting for the right time to dive headlong into this natural sanctuary, that you can enjoy with a walk to Bora Bora Lagoonarium. Once there, set aside the day so that you can fully appreciate the dazzling marine splendor of this fish park with its absolutely magical flora and fauna. Swim and snorkel among colorful fish, feed sharks and other elegant rays: the park allows visitors to get right up close to the sheer beauty of these oceans. If wildlife parks aren't your thing, Vaitape gives you the chance to visit the most beautiful diving sites on the island, if not the whole world, while being fully supervised by professional teams. There can be no more beautiful place in the world to learn how to dive. Then return to the surface and indulge in some other adrenaline-fueled and exciting sporting activities. Indeed, Bora Bora will allow you to experience the thrills of kitesurfing, some paddle-boarding or the very traditional, but very characteristic, boat ride around the island. There's no better way to set off freely and explore a surreal island of earth-shattering beauty. These activities are bound to make you hungry. Make the most of this and give your taste buds a treat as you tuck into some Polynesian cuisine, made up of raw fish, poultry and poe, a pudding made of vanilla, coconut and banana or papaya.
