Bora Bora is an idyllic island in French Polynesia, a sprinkling of islands smack-bang in the vast expanse of Pacific Ocean between Australia and South America.
This part of the planet is relatively untrod – the whole country gets just 40,000 visitors a year – so castaway beaches and honeymoon hotels are the order of the day. In fact, the only high-rise in sight is Mount Otemanu, the resident volcano.
Got your sights set for Bora Bora? Then you’re in for quite a trip – expect a few stops, all finished off with a super scenic flight between Tahiti and Bora Bora.
It’s a long one. There are at least two 2 stops one way – and often 3. That means flights last from 20 to 40-plus hours long.
First you have to get to Tahiti, the main island in French Polynesia. Air New Zealand offers flights with just one stopover – but you’ll end up paying extra for the saved time. Qantas Airways and Emirates put on longer, cheaper flights with 2 stopovers.
The last leg of your trip is covered by Air Tahiti Nui, which lays on a direct flight from Tahiti to Bora Bora.
There’s a choice of routes, so Perth to Bora Bora flights take off several times a day.

There aren’t any direct flights from Perth to Bora Bora.
Flights from Perth to Bora Bora deliver you to a quintessentially South Pacific island. It’s only 30 km² and yet serves up shell-white beaches, rustling palm forests and crystal-clear waters – plus a full deck of luxury hotels to go with them.
Then there’s Mount Otemanu. You can’t miss this jagged volcano, which sticks up like a thumb in the in the middle of the island.
A few millennia of volcanic activity has also created a ring of islands around Bora Bora, along with a dead calm lagoon. It’s little wonder that scuba diving is one of the top activities here.
