Coral Gardens Tours

Bora Bora is one of the most famous islands in French Polynesia. The main island is surrounded by a lagoon, a barrier reef, and tiny islets that help keep the water calm most of the time. On Bora Bora across from the main island, you'll find the fascinating Coral Gardens. This coral reef is not far below the surface of the water, so it makes for easy and fun snorkeling. Visitors will get to see colorful coral as well as a variety of fish that live in the area. Some of the fish you could see include butterfly fish, parrot fish, puffer fish, Picasso trigger fish, snapper, tang, goat fish, grouper, trumpet fish, zebra unicorn fish, wrasse or Japanese moray eels. In some areas, it's possible to even see sharks and stingrays. 

There aren't many public beaches on Bora Bora since the resorts own them privately. This makes access to the Coral Garden reefs a bit limited depending on where you're staying. Many companies operate boat tours, shark and stingray feedings, snorkeling, and scuba diving excursions. These tours are especially helpful in bringing visitors to see parts of the coral reef located farther from shore. 

Practical Info

The Coral Gardens section of Bora Bora's reef is easiest to access, and it is located east of the main island and across from the Sofitel Marara resort.
