Hey you, welcome to Bora Bora !

When is the best moment to come ?

French Polynesia boasts a tropical climate characterized by two distinct seasons.

From April to December, the dry season prevails with sunny days and gentle breezes, ideal for exploring the pristine beaches and vibrant marine life.

In contrast, from January to March, the wet season brings occasional heavy rainfall, nurturing the lush vegetation that blankets the islands.

Regardless of the season, French Polynesia offers breathtaking natural beauty and endless opportunities for exploration and adventure so it's always the best moment to come to meet us in paradise :)

Weather in French Polynesia can change in the blink of an eye. One moment, the sun shines brightly and suddenly, dark clouds roll in. But just as quickly as the rain begins, it can cease, leaving behind a refreshed, vibrant landscape. This dynamic weather keeps the islands lush and vibrant, offering a constant dance between sun and rain.

Here are our tips to keep you entertained :

· Enjoy a relaxing moment at the spa with an invigorating local massage or an after-sun treatment for sunburn (we hope you don't need it)

· Let's make a splash despite the rain! Go for snorkeling, and explore our wonderful marine fauna and flora. You will be wet anyway :)

· Appreciate the comfort of your room, reading your favorite book or just savor the beauty of the rain. To have time for yourself is the new luxury !
