Best time of year to visit Bora Bora

June to December is the best time to visit Bora Bora as it offers a large choice of things to do. November is a prime month to visit this South Pacific island to witness sea turtles laying eggs on the shores, meet dolphins, attend a traditional canoe competition, and watch the world’s best water athletes at the annual Iron Mana Bora Bora Liquid Festival. Another great time to travel to Bora Bora is July when baby turtles start hatching from the eggs, the diving season is in full swing, the ocean teems with Manta Rays, and a great cultural festival Heiva i Bora Bora is on. The only thing left for you to do is book tickets and head to Bora Bora.
