"The island paradise is beloved by everyone from Melville, Michener and Gauguin to more modern mavericks such as Brando and Nicholson. Welcome to Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. Ia Orana (yo-rah-nah)!"

"Bora Bora’s sunny days are filled with activities like snorkelling with sharks and rays. But little is said of the island's incredibly starry black nights."

"When night falls, the island takes on a certain grace. Female guests emerge from the over-water bungalows with tanned skin set off by attractive dresses and newly purchased black Tahitian pearls, men with crisp shirts, combed wet hair and smiles that run deep. The ukulele- and guitar-strumming golf cart drivers shuttle guests to and from the restaurants, their melodic voices lilting over the floodlit green waters below."

Those lucky enough to have travelled to Bora Bora aren’t likely to forget the pink glow of the island sunset or the way the sea changes from sapphire to turquoise and back again. At least not anytime soon. That may be why U.S. News & World Report named Bora Bora the best island in the world. See what our Around the World by Private Jet journalist Adam H. Graham captured on film, and tell us if you agree. Is Bora Bora the best?
