Bora Bora, Tahiti Nov 8, 2011

Bora Bora, Tahiti

November 8, 2011

*** Be very careful what water you drink in all of the Polynesia area - They drink Mineral water like we drink spring water, ie:  in their bottled water is a % of Magnesium that Americans are not used to - So, Beware! ~ Magnesium ~ as in ~ Milk of Magnesia ;-) ***

For many ~ there are few places, if any, in the world ~ whose natural beauty surpasses Bora Bora.  Here nature painted a perfect masterpiece of deep green volcanic peaks edged by a ribbon of reef and magnificent white-sand beaches.  A small island, Toopua, and the islet Toopua iti proudly stand guard nearby.  All of this majesty rises from a spectacular lagoon of jewel-like hues ranging from deep amethyst to light turquoise.

Most of Bora Bora’s residents live on the flat coastal strip that rings the island.  The paved round-island road skirts the shoreline and runs in and out of the bays.  Because the road is only 32Km (19 miles) long, many visitors see it by bicycle ~ give your self a full day, scooter or car.
