The Island of Bora Bora Named A "Best Island" By Global Traveler Magazine
July 8 2013

Bora Bora is only 18 miles in circumference, yet it is often considered the most beautiful place in the world and was recently named as the “Best Island in Australia and the South Pacific” by Global Traveler magazine. This is the first time this category has been included in reader surveys conducted by the magazine. 

“On behalf of Tahiti Tourism and the Islands of Tahiti, we are honored that Global Traveler has named our pearl of the Pacific, the island of Bora Bora, the Best Island Australia and the South Pacific. The Islands of Tahiti are just 8 hours from Los Angeles and the quintessential South Pacific island of Bora Bora is a quick 45-minute flight from Tahiti. Offering romantics, families and adventures alike stunning lush mountains as a dramatic backdrop with turquoise, lapis and aquamarine lagoons, iconic overwater bungalows at world-class resorts and quaint French-inspired restaurants for the ultimate private getaway,” stated Jonathan Reap, Managing Director, Tahiti Tourism North America.  

Voting for Global Travelers’ first-ever Leisure Travel Awards took place May 1–Dec. 31, 2012, online at globaltravelerusa.com/leisureawardsballot. Each category included a number of nominees as well as an option for voters to fill in and vote for their favorite. Global Traveler surveys receive thousands of responses yearly.  The survey seeked input for the best of the best in a number of leisure-related categories, naming Lifestyle, Cruise Line, Resort, Tour Operator and Island award winners.

Global Traveler launched in February 2004 as the only U.S. magazine aimed at the American executive who travels internationally and domestically in first and business class.
