With a circumference of 19 miles, Bora Bora is large enough to provide a vacation full of memories.

Best time to take a vacation to Bora Bora
The dry season-from May to October-tends to attract more visitors, as temperatures range from about 75˚F to 84˚F and rainfall is limited. The remainder of the year is somewhat hotter-81˚F to 86˚F-and accounts for 75 percent of the annual precipitation. While these statistics may appear to disfavor the rainy season, many tours of Bora Bora still take place at this time, as travelers seek the lower fares and rates offered by airlines and hotels. In spite of the increased humidity and rainfall of a Polynesian summer, sunshine is still plentiful and the area's natural beauty remains.
