Bora Bora is a small island and its most popular form of transport is a moped, which travellers can rent.
Local transport is not the most reliable and taxis are expensive.
However, depending on the location of your accommodation, resorts and restaurants may be within easy walking distance. For example, Matira Point has a few resorts close by and some resorts provide free shuttles around the island.
Private transportation to and from the airport is best, and it is easy to book it ahead of time through your accommodation.

Types of transport. Le Truck is Bora Bora’s public bus system and follows ferry and school times. While it has dedicated bus stops, which are marked with blue signs, it’s not uncommon for buses to pick up passengers anywhere along the coastal road. The buses have routes around half of the island and are known for being unreliable.
Paying for transport. You pay the driver in cash when exiting the bus, and the fare is more often than not a set fare.
Getting to and from the airport. Public transport is not used to get from the airport to resorts on the island. There is a ferry from the airport to the town of Vaitape.
Best apps for getting around. The Bora Bora Island Offline Map Travel Guide app uses location-based navigation to guide you on the best route by foot to the island's top attractions.
Taxi. Taxis can be hailed from the side of the road or booked in advance. Prices are generally high and increase after 7pm.
Uber. Uber is currently unavailable in Bora Bora.
Mopeds are also popular for getting around the island and you can rent one at Fare Piti Rent-a-Car.
Other car rentals may be available at select resorts.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved.
