Beach walking and Snorkeling: There are few better places in the world to enjoy the beach than Bora-Bora. Come prepared with a swimsuit, towel, long-sleeved shirt, sunscreen, sunglasses, and hat. I like to go barefoot on the beach but if that isn’t your thing, sandals or flip-flops should work fine. Don’t forget your mask and snorkel!
Trekking: If you decide to have a go at one of Bora-Bora’s scenic trails, you’ll want to dress entirely in activewear, which will help keep you cool and won’t soak up as much sweat as cotton clothing. Wear shorts or hiking pants and a t-shirt, as well as walking shoes and sun protection. Don’t forget your daypack with your raincoat, trekking poles, and other necessities.
Boating: What better way to experience Bora-Bora than the way the Polynesians first arrived – via the deck of a boat? While boating around the island, wear surf shorts and a t-shirt, as well as a lifejacket and sunhat. Keep your foul weather gear handy in case the weather gets rough.
Dinner With Friends: This is the reason you brought your fancy clothes to a tropical island. Bora-Bora attracts the world’s rich and famous, and it’s ok to dress like them if that’s your thing. Formal pants and shoes, along with a button-down shirt and blazer or a dinner dress, should work for even the fanciest resorts on the island.
