Packing list for Bora Bora
Refillable Water Bottle – Save on expensive resort water costs and bring a refillable water bottle that you fill up at the resort gym!
Wide-brimmed sun hat
These are my favorite sun hats for a trip to Bora Bora (and the ones I’m ALWAYS getting asked about!!!)
Other sun hats – I like to bring both a wide brimmed hat and more of a bucket hat because sometimes that’s more comfortable while laying on a lounge chair!
You’ll also definitely need an underwater camera – all the details on what I use for my underwater photos is here (and those awesome half in/half out underwater photos you’ve seen on my Instagram)
Floaties for outside of your bungalow
This definitely isn’t a must but it’s a fun one to have (and looks great for photos!) it’s fun to float around outside your bungalow!
Especially if you are traveling to Bora Bora with kids, they’ll love bringing a fun floatie along!
Do you need water shoes for Bora Bora?
If you plan on staying at your resort, then no not really. But if you’re going to be exploring other beaches/islands around French Polynesia, or your feet are sensitive to more rocky sands, some of the best snorkeling spots you’ll DEFINITELY need some water shoes. Here are some good ones on Amazon.
Should I bring a snorkel mask?
I do like bringing my own snorkel mask vs relying on hotel masks, but that’s up to you! Your hotel will definitely have masks you can borrow, too if you want to save space!
Cute outfits for Bora Bora
Of course, when planning a trip to Bora Bora, the most fun part is thinking about all the cute clothes you’ll get to wear on vacation. Vacation outfits are my specialty – and there’s nothing I like shopping for more! Here are some of my favorite outfits for Bora Bora.
the cutest earrings!
The Best Bikinis & One Pieces for a Trip to Bora Bora
Sometimes an all-white bikini is just what you need for the perfect Bora Bora bikini. It also looks great in photos and pops against the aqua waters!
my favorite melon green ribbed bikini – I’m obsessed!
Beach bags for a trip to Bora Bora
If you’re planning on being active – pack a tropical active set!
If you’re planning on doing any resort sports, this exercise dress works great for golf or tennis or pickleball! it has a high-quality full-body spandex lining that makes it oh-so-comfy to wear all day long!
