Bora Bora is 30.55 km2 (12 sq mi). The main island lies 230 km (125 nm) northwest of Papeete and has a lagoon and barrier reef. Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, the island's tallest peaks, are the relics of an extinct volcano (2,385 ft).

The commune of Bora-Bora also contains Tpai atoll. Bora Bora speaks French and Tahitian. Many Bora Bora people have learned English thanks to tourism.

Bora Bora is known for its coastal (and offshore) luxury resorts. Vaitape sits on the island's western side, opposite the lagoon's main canal. The island's produce consists largely of seafood and coconuts, which were previously important for copra production.

Bora Bora is one of the most popular islands in the Tahitian Islands. Bora Bora, one of the Society Islands' nine islands, was constructed about seven million years ago by a volcano. Bora Bora, like the majority of French Polynesia's islands, is surrounded by a ring of coral reef, also known as an atoll.

This south Pacific island may easily be characterized as the heart of the amorous world, with overwater bungalows, thatched-roof houses, and a mythical ambience dotting the island. Bora Bora is just one of the most gorgeous islands in the world.
