Bora Bora Airport

The small but efficient Bora Bora Airport—also known as the Motu Mute Airport—is on a small islet which is located just off-shore from the main island of Bora Bora. This enchanting island is one of French Polynesia’s most beautiful, and enjoying its paradisiacal charms only involves taking a short boat ride from the airport to get started.

There is only one terminal, and its most predominant feature is its stunning view of the archipelago, so passengers will find that this transport hub is compact, and fairly limited in terms of its facilities.

However, one excellent perk of flying into Bora Bora is that when you leave the airport you will be given a free shuttle boat transfer onto the main island. These are paid for and provided through Air Tahiti, which is the only airline carrier to this airport. There is also a hotel desk located within the terminal building, where you can get information on the island and will be directed to the correct boat for your passage to Viatape, the main island docking port.

There is only one way to get to Bora Bora’s primary island, and that is via boat, or more specifically, catamaran. The journey will take around 25 minutes from BOB airport to Viatape, and the cost of the transfer should be included with your Air Tahiti plane tickets.

The information provided above is accurate as of March 3, 2016.

 Getting to & from the Airport

Driving hide 

Some people choose to rent a car to full explore Bora Bora, though please be aware that it only takes about an hour to drive around the entire island if you do not stop for breaks. You can rent cars on the main isle from trusted brands like Alamo, Avis, Basic and Budget.

There is also a company called Fare Piti Rent-a-Car which stocks mopeds if you’d rather feel the sun on your face. It is worth noting that if you do decide to rent a car or a moped, that purchasing petrol on Bora Bora can be much more expensive than you may be used to back home.

If you’d rather not drive, but still want the mobility of a vehicle, you can hire bicycles on the island. Renting a bicycle also has the added advantage of being much cheaper, and will roughly cost you about 15USD ($19) a day.

Taxi hide 

There aren’t any taxis on Bora Bora, but most hotels, and even some restaurants will pick you up and drop you back. They are generally not metered, so you must agree on a price before you set off.
