Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora

4.7
Head up to the base of Mount Otemanu, an impressive natural monument whose volcanic rock peak marks the highest point on Bora Bora. While the brittle, jagged, 727 m (2,385 ft) summit is too inhospitable to be accessed, you can hike or take a 4x4 trip up to the base of the mountain. The latter option remains the most popular, because of the jungle's density and the difficulty of the walk. Look up at the black, rugged top of the mountain (visible across the island) as it stands in sharp contrast to the lush greens and bright blues of most of the landscape.

  • On a cruise. Saw it from the road on a tour. I think they said it is 2,385 ft. high. Different colors depending on sun or clouds.  more »
  • We visited Vaitape (Bora Bora) for one day by cruise ship and anchored in the bay. Such a magnificent sight to see Mount Otemanu change colours with more or less cloud cover as the day progressed...  more »

  • Otemanu is a small South Pacific island northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Surrounded by sand-fringed motus (islets) and a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef, it’s known for its scuba diving. It's also a popular luxury resort destination where some guest bungalows are perched over the water on stilts. At the island's center rises Mt. Otemanu, a 727m dormant volcano.
  • Views are incredible fro all angles.....a new view every cloud that glides through the top
