Going To Bora Bora For Your Honeymoon? Here’s What To Pack!

What to pack on your honeymoon to Bora Bora

Plan a trip to Bora Bora in French Polynesia for everything you could want in a honeymoon location—breathtaking scenes, picturesque hikes and calming ocean views. And nothing will say the “romantic getaway of your dreams" like the secluded over-water bungalows surrounded by crystal-clear turquoise lagoons at the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort (talk about an Instagram worthy location!) For its hefty price tag, you can even get a romance concierge who will plan everything from sunset champagne sips to a personalized firework show—all the makings of a truly once-in-a-lifetime trip.

The best time to plan a visit to Bora Bora is from November through April, when you can enjoy the mild temperatures and avoid summer crowds. But the beauty of Bora Bora is that it is warm year-round, so really any time of year is ideal. And what if you want to do more than bliss-out and lounge all week? There are lots of adventures to be had from biking the towering Mount Otemanu to a diving expedition of the inner lagoon.
