Bora Bora: What’s in a Name?

20140127-225212.jpg

Did you know that Bora Bora’s name is really Pora Pora? Early settlers misunderstood what the local Tahitians were saying. They heard “Bora Bora” instead of “Pora Pora” which means “first born.” The name was never corrected.

I doubt anyone could argue that Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. One of the best things about this spot? There are NO poisonous snakes or insects in Bora Bora. So relax and fall asleep under the stars.
