Uncovering authentic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation. We’re taking advantage of our partnership with Travel + Leisure to get their editors’ recommendations and insider tips on the places you will want to visit. Here are their picks for just one of the 150 destinations they covered.
Head 100 feet below the ocean’s surface to view Bora Bora’s pristine barrier reef, brimming with corals and exotic fish, such as stingrays, lemon sharks, damselfish, and the occasional turtle.
Bold and colorful paintings line the walls of this 10-table restaurant, where Corsican-born chef Damien Rinaldi Dovio uses native ingredients (Tahitian vanilla oil; coconut milk) in reimagined Mediterranean dishes. Make sure to reserve a table in advance.
Bora Bora Lagoonarium
This swimmable outdoor aquarium has three pools full of marine life, including parrot fish, turtles, and rays. The boat ride to and from the Lagoonarium is worth the trip alone—it sails the complete circumference of the island.
