Take a private half-day boat tour, departing in the morning. The boat does a circuit of Bora Bora, stopping for shark-feeding and snorkelling in a coral garden. A delicious picnic lunch in the shallows completes the experience.
Have a heavenly treatment at the Deep Ocean Spa, located at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. Try an invigorating body scrub, detoxifying marine wrap or a relaxing massage. The waters used in the Deep Ocean Spa come from a depth of 2,700ft and are extremely pure and mineral-rich as a result.
Take a guided jet-ski ride around Bora Bora. There is nothing more exhilarating than whizzing round the lagoon at high speed.
Jump into Le Truck and have a circular tour of Bora Bora, visiting Matira Point and a number of ancient marae (stone temples).
Get an aerial view of Bora Bora on a 30-minute helicopter flight. As you circle the island overhead, you'll enjoy a bird's-eye view of its two black volcanic peaks, Mounts Pahia and Otemanu, and the shimmering lagoon below.
A jeep safari adventure takes you into the lush interior of Bora Bora. You'll see some of the 20ft naval guns that still preside over lookout points used by the US military in World War II, when the island was a strategic base. The panoramas from these points are simply spectacular. You'll also come across ancient maraes Polynesian stone temples.
Tip: The hotel can book you a great table and organise transfers to and from the restaurant. Everybody has dinner at least once at this Bora Bora institution.
Tip: Bring along your own snorkel, mask and fins. An underwater camera and reef shoes are useful, too. Snorkel in the shallow waters of the lagoon behind a secure rope while a guide feeds schools of friendly sharks and rays.
