LOS ANGELES – May 18, 2015 – The island of Bora Bora, one of the 118 islands and atolls that make up the Islands of Tahiti, was recognized as a top island in the world by the “Top 10 Islands in the World” 2015 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice™ Islands 2015 awards.

 

The Travelers’ Choice “Top 10 Islands in the World” awards honor top travel spots worldwide based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travelers. Award winners were determined based on the popularity of islands, taking into account travelers’ favorite and most highly rated places.

 

“Our well-traveled community has uncovered the best islands around the world for that perfect island escape whether you want to lie on the beach or seek adventure,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “To help travelers book their trips to these remarkable destinations, TripAdvisor has surfaced amazing island hotels to accommodate a range of travel budgets.”

 

 

TripAdvisor notes about Bora Bora, “Turquoise lagoons, soft white sands, and deep tangerine sunsets set the scene for romance on 2015’s #9 Travelers’ Choice island in the world. Mingle with tropical fish as you flutter around Coral Gardens or Tupitipiti Point, or relax on a self-driving tour as you take in beautiful views of the once-volcanic Mount Otemanu. At the Lagoonarium you can watch shark feedings and swim with turtles. Cap it all off with a succulent meal at one of the island’s fine French restaurants, then sip a tropical cocktail under the stars.”
