The climate of Bora Bora (French Polynesia)
Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, one of the five overseas collectivities of France in the Pacific Ocean. In the beginning of the 18th century Bora Bora was discovered by the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen. During WWII the Americans built a small air base on the island. This air base was used as the only international airport of the island till the 1960s. Bora Bora may be the best known holiday destination in the Pacific. Several tourist resorts can be found on the island. The most famous resorts are those with the overwater bungalows on stilts. The island is almost entirely dependent on tourism. The northerly located island Tupai is administratively part of Bora Bora.
Bora Bora has a tropical rainforest climate with most precipitation during the summer. During these months there is a risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. This makes the island less suitable as a winter sun destination. The average annual temperature during the day is 30 degrees Celsius. During the evening and night temperatures drop to 6-7 degrees Celsius. The temperature of the sea is pleasant all year round and suitable for swimming and snorkeling.
