Overview

Discovery of Bora Bora’s hidden interior areasNatura Discovery organizes guided tours to discover the culture, history, legends and the local Polynesian natural environment. We wish to share this experience with overseas visitors and to do so, we have restored a “family” Marae (ancient place of worship), known as Marae Hau Puni, surrounded by an arboretum with medicinal, food plants and herbs for showcasing and sampling. Each district in Bora Bora has its own legends tied to different “Marae” and sacred stones and you will thus be touring from districts to legends...The Ofa’i Honu in the Bay of Povai, the Marae Vaiotaha in Tiipoto, the Marae Hau Puni in the Faanui Valley, the small Pe’a cave in Anau and the sunset on Matira Beach.For a complete island tour, we will make a stop at a strategic viewpoint arranged by the U.S forces during WW II, with two guns now remaining out of the eight originally at the ready and one bunker left of the 300 which then faced the island’s only entrance channel known as the “Teavarua” Pass.We will also meet the islanders, farmers and “mamas” who make pareos using typical patterns and colors of our “fenua”.

Daniel drove us around the island (you go around the whole thing!) - it was a very laid back tour since it is such a small island, but a great way to see everything. The highlight was walking out to see the old WWII cannons......More

About 100 USD. There will be various tour firms with stalls at the dock in Vaitape. Personally, I found Natura very poor quality.
