Mount Otemanu is so beautiful! The view is different depending on where you are on the island. The airport is a great place to snap some pictures or take a boat tour around the island!

Breathtaking BoraBora mountain scenic view. A scene from out of the movies. The amount of aquamarine water is unbelievable. I thought the water in Hawaii was Beautiful, but this us spectacular.

Touring the entire island was shocking. Versus Moorea or even Papeete, the island lacks cleanliness and pride of ownership. It was shocking as the atolls are pristine ... so I naturally thought it would carry over to the main island.

Mount Otemanu seems to change shape at every given angle! Quite exceptional. A boat trip around the Island is what i would recommend.

The view from Pearl Beach Resort is magnificent! It is nice spot can see the whole Bora Bora, see all the resorts locations . With a tour guide he would tell you where you can see the shark and where you can feed the stingray ~ quite fun ~

Mount Otemanu is the highest peak on Bora Bora's main island. The second tallest being Mount Pahia. You can view the mountain peak from many parts of the island and outer motus where many of the top hotels are located.

Mt. Otemanu is beautiful mountain in the center of the island of Bora Bora. Take a boat around the island and view it from different vantage points.

You can see the Mountain from just about anywhere, but a boat ride or drive around the island will reveal some very beautiful views.

Heaven on earth. This place can give a clear picture of each exactly where heaven on earth. If I'd lived there, but unfortunately the lack of accessible drinking water stops me. There should be more drinking water and this place to preserve the future.
