Mount Otemanu and the lagoon are Bora Bora. Taking a catamaran ride with the sun setting over the mountain is beautiful. The four wheel ride trip to see the guns on the mountain is a fun trip. Worth the cost!

In such a small island, this mountain looks monumental. It's tip is always covered with clouds and we could see it fully only once for an hour in a whole week.

The majestic Mt Otemanu is ever present in most of my photographs. One cannot think of Bora Bora without seeing this wonderful mountain in the background.

Mount Otemanu is the core of Bora Bora and no matter where you go on or around the island, you see this beautiful mountain. Our bungalow at the St. Regis had a great view of Mount Otemanu and we enjoyed every minute viewing this magnificent sight!

Have had the privilege of visiting Bora Bora many times since 1987. Mount Otemanu is the first impression one gets arriving on the cruise ships we travel on. It was a lookout during WW 2 and fortunately did not see combat. Flew in on one occasion and it looks also very impressive from the air.

We went on a tour around the island and visited the ww2 canons left by our troops. Our tour guide Tamara was super . I was a little uneasy going up the mountain but she was so good she made me feel better.

Rent a bike for 17$ and you can bike around and see local attractions in less than 3 hours! The beaches and restaurants on the beach are cheap. Lots of artsy places and art stores around. Go downtown by the marina and get your shopping done!

View if the mountain at the St Regis was exceptional . We also passed the mountain on a snorkel trio and trim a sunset cruise. Views were amazing!
