We’ve had quite a few people ask us the question…
Is Bora Bora in Tahiti?
No, Bora Bora and Tahiti are two separate islands in French Polynesia. Most people get these two islands confused because they’re both apart of a group of islands called, the ‘Society Islands’. They also go hand in hand when you think of tropical paradise.
Here’s a map to show you…
As you can see on the map, Bora Bora is located about 160 miles northwest of Tahiti. Two completely separate islands.
The main differences
Tahiti is more popular because of its location and development. In fact, if you end up taking a trip to any French Polynesian islands, you’ll first have to fly into Tahiti. If you’re looking for any sort of nightlife, then Tahiti easily takes the cake.
If you want to stay at a Bora Bora resort, then there’s a good chance you’ll be taking a boat to access the resort. Tranquility is Bora Bora’s strength, which is why most honeymooners choose it over Tahiti.
