Bora Bora

French Polynesia

Scuba dive with manta rays and lemon sharks

The island of Bora Bora is peaceful and idyllic, but under the sea there’s a whole new world of tropical beauty and calm—until a lemon shark swims past you. Less adrenalin-inducing but just as majestic are the manta rays often found at the Anau dive site on the island's west side—they come here to get the parasites nibbled off them by fish. Along with the island's coral, there are plenty of colorful fish, eels, black tip reef sharks, stingrays, and sea turtles in the blue depths. Even non-divers should consider taking a first dive—or at least an undersea walk with a weighted helmet, where you don’t even need to know how to swim.
