Bora Bora: Island Tour and Mountains Getaway by Quad Bike

1. Bora Bora: Island Tour and Mountains Getaway by Quad Bike

After a quick initiation on how to drive your quad, cross Vaitape, the city center of Bora Bora, that leads you directly onto the plateau of Amanahune for a superb view of the fifty shades of blue of the beautiful lagoon. You will then head to the legendary Matira Beach and the famous restaurant Bloody Mary's. After several passages on the main road, take a small off-road path that will lead you to the Rock of Anau with a magnificent view of the hotels located on the islets and also a surprising view of the mythical Mount Otemanu. Next, visit another superb viewing point where you’ll discover the first vestiges of the Second World War. Then, drive to a village for a fun stop to see how a pareo is made. The wraparound skirt is not only considered a symbol of Polynesian culture in terms of clothing, but also of artistic expertise. Continue on to a tasting of exotic fruits and coconut water where your guide will present a “coco show” demonstration and lesson on the coconut. You’ll also enjoy a 5-minute stop at the entrance of the Faanui Valley, another incredible viewing point.  To end our tour, take in the mythical place considered to be one of the most beautiful points of the island, the Faanui Canon lookout. Contemplate the lagoon and Faanui Bay with an incomparable panorama making for an unforgettable memory of your time on Bora Bora.

We had a wonderful guide, and it was a really fun day. He was able to take us to areas the bigger boats couldn't go to. Very personalized experience for 4 people. I would definitely do it again.

Great experience to see the island. Would recommended to take a picnic and stop at one of the beaches if time permits. Only did the 4 hour hire but this was perfect.

Excellent experience, competent guide and ensuring the safety of the participants.
