My latest visit to Bora Bora was an exciting one and here is my collection of information which can be useful for you. I personally would highly recommend Bora Bora as a tourist destination. The Bora Bora Island in French Polynesia is an ideal way to pamper oneself with luxurious resorts which offer lavishness and incredible scenery. The population of Bora Bora is 8,880 with tourism being the backbone of the economy. The major settlement here is the Vaitape which is on the western side of the main island. You will find abundant coconut trees on the island. The legal drinking age in the island is 18 years. The climate in Bora Bora and its neighboring islands is Tropical. The island experience wet and dry seasons. The Wet season begins in November and lasts till April. The island experiences heavy rainfall and there is also a predicament of storms during these months. The peak season, also the dry season initiates in May and goes on till October during which the temperatures are lower in the island. This is the high tourist season on the island. Local People & Language
The local people residing in Bora Bora are cultural and have a firm belief on their traditions and myths which comes from Polynesian Gods. The people are laid back and live by the philosophy “aita pea pea” which translates – not to worry. The local people are friendly and warm-hearted and are forthcoming enough to share their tradition with the visitors. The common language spoken by the inhabitants on the island is Tahitian and French. However, being an international tourist destination, many local people are well versed with English language. The reason local people are well versed with English is because of the fact that tourists visiting the island include majorly Americans, Europeans and Japanese.
