One of the highlights of our honeymoon was a 4x4 tour of Bora Bora's main island, Vaitape. Most of the resorts with over-water bungalows are built on small islands in the lagoon surrounding the main island. The Hilton had a shuttle that ran every hour back and forth - the trip was about 15 minutes. We traveled to Vaitape for the tour and the following night for dinner at the Bora Bora Yacht Club.
The same friend that helped me plan and prepare for the honeymoon gave us this excursion as a wedding present. She arranged our tour with Vavau 4x4 Adventures through the hotel concierge.
We traveled along a main road that circles the island and went up steep mountains only accessible by the Jeep. Our driver had skills.
World War II canons.
Taking it all in.
We learned so much about Bora Bora from our awesome tour guide, Poroi.
After the excursion we relaxed back at our bungalow. I miss this view!
