|About these ratings|
On a small islet just east of the main island and directly across from the Sofitel Marara, you'll find a gorgeous coral reef. Because the reef isn't far below the water, all you need to bring with you to spy the cache of colorful fish is some snorkeling goggles. But keep in mind this helpful tip from a TripAdvisor user: "Bring your aqua socks/shoes, the beaches are corally, not soft sand!"
To reach the Coral Gardens, Tahiti Tourisme suggests a handful of tour operators. You'll find these operators near the Bora Bora Lagoonarium on a small motu (island) east of the main one. Because the reef is really close to the shore, you can get there via a five-minute boat ride or you can swim there in 20 minutes.
