Find Major Airports in Bora Bora

Familiarizing yourself with Bora Bora’s major airports before flying is important so you can choose the most suitable airport for your travel needs. Here are the key airports offering convenient access to various destinations.

Bora Bora Airport (BOB), also called Motu Mute Airport, is a small airport on an islet in Bora Bora, French Polynesia. It’s not easily reached by road and is mostly accessed by boat because it’s in a lagoon. While it’s the second largest airport in French Polynesia, it doesn’t have direct international flights. Travelers usually fly to Faa’a International Airport in Tahiti first, then take a 50-minute inter-island flight to Bora Bora. Air Tahiti and Air Moana are the airlines operating at Bora Bora Airport, with Air Tahiti being the main carrier offering flights to several regional destinations.


Aéroport de Raiatea (RFP), or Raiatea Airport serves Raiatea Island. It’s a domestic airport in Uturoa village, mainly handling flights within French Polynesia. Air Tahiti and Air Moana are the airlines there, with Air Tahiti being the main one. Raiatea Airport connects to five domestic destinations, including Tahiti, Bora Bora, Huahine, Maupiti, and Moorea. It is conveniently located about 10 minutes by car from Uturoa town.


Huahine Fare (HUH) is located in the northern part of Fare, on the island of Huahine Fare. Air Tahiti is the only airline that operates at this airport, offering domestic flights to four destinations within French Polynesia: Bora Bora, Moorea, Raiatea, and Tahiti. The most common route is to Tahiti, which takes about 40 minutes. Visitors can use taxis or rental services for local transportation on the island.

The Best Time to Visit Bora Bora

The best time to visit Bora Bora is during the peak season, from May to October. It has the best weather, with dry conditions, less humidity, and temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s°F (24 to 29°C). It’s perfect for outdoor activities and enjoying the island’s beauty, but it’s also the busiest time, especially in August, which can mean crowded attractions and higher prices.


For a quieter experience and possibly better deals, consider visiting in the shoulder seasons of November and April. These months still have good weather but fewer tourists.  

The low season, from December to March, has more rainfall and higher humidity, which might not appeal to everyone. However, it also means fewer tourists and potentially lower prices, making it a good choice for budget-conscious travelers who don’t mind a bit of rain.
