BORA BORA NAMED AS A WORLD’S TOP ISLAND BY TRIPADVISOR
April 20 2016

BORA BORA NAMED AS A WORLD’S TOP ISLAND BY TRIPADVISOR 
 
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – April 20, 2016 – The island of Bora Bora, one of the 118 islands and atolls that make up The Islands of Tahiti, was recognized as the number nine island in the world for the second year in a row in the 2016 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice™  Top 10 Islands in the World by TripAdvisor®, the travel planning and booking site.
 
Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions on islands worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period, as well as traveler booking interest on TripAdvisor.
 
“With common traits like breathtaking beaches, exciting activities and popular hotels and restaurants, the Travelers’ Choice Islands are favorites of the TripAdvisor community,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor.
 
TripAdvisor experts note, “Turquoise lagoons, soft white sands, and deep tangerine sunsets set the scene for romance on the island so nice they named it twice. Mingle with tropical fish as you flutter around Coral Gardens or Tupitipiti Point, or relax in 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.”
