French Polynesia (more commonly known as Tahiti) is made up of 118 islands that are divided into five archipelagos. Bora Bora is situated in the volcanic Society Islands in the middle South Pacific Ocean, halfway between Australia and the USA. The island is an overseas territory of France.

The island was named Pora Pora, which means “first born” by the original Polynesian settlers that inhabited the islands. However, the first European settlers to visit the island misheard and believed the natives had said Bora Bora and that is the name its has today.
