Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the Pacific Ocean.

The island is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, (see below) the highest point at 727 meters (2,385 ft).

When we were here, we took a jet boat tour around the island and stopped in a few places to snorkel.  The water was crystal clear and the views were spectacular!
