Off the Beaten Track: Bora Bora by 4-Wheel-Drive

This four-wheel-drive excursion takes you to places accessible only to rugged off-road vehicles. Drive through the small town of Vaitape to make your first ascent up Pahonu Hill. Great views of Bora Bora’s natural harbor and Matira Beach await you. Continue with more off-road adventure and visit the seven-inch cannons still in their original World War II locations. Travel along the northern shore of Bora Bora into the lush valley of Faanui. Perhaps the highlight of the trip is the view of Faanui Bay from a traditional plantation high up in the mountains. On your return to the main road, pass by Matira Beach and continue with a stop at The Farm, offering restrooms and refreshments. Before you leave this facility, you’ll learn about pearl farming through interpretive signs. With your guide at the wheel, you’ll enjoy some great sightseeing and learn much about the island’s history and people.

The guide for this tour did not seem to be as knowledgeable as some we have had. The tour took us up a steep incline and then a sharp turn. We had to give the incline a "second run!"
This was certainly not the best 4x4 tour that we have taken! In my opinion, the pearl farm was an opportunity for them to sell their pearls with little to see. The refreshements were offered at a price in a small cabin off the beach where a lot of our fellow passengers were enjoying the water and sand.
The tour had a bathroom break but I was advised by another passenger to wait if I could! They did serve fresh fruit.
Not a bad tour.
