    Sun relief pareos

    by jelw Written May 5, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This unexpected delight is a couple miles down on the left from the dock. The vahine make handmade Pareos which are died and then color relief designs are made by placing cutout designs on the wet fabric and allowing the sun work its magic. They also make jewelry and if you are lucky some delicious food for you to taste.

    Just keep your eyes open for the roof.

    Bora Bora Hammock with Sarah

    Although I am way too large to enjoy the relaxing sway of the wind while sitting in a hammock, I can definitely see the appeal. Sarah was able to find this one at our resort, and the view was spectacular. Grab your favorite book, put on your sunblock, and just enjoy!

    Where is the CyberCafe?

    by nicolettart Written Jun 16, 2003

    I really wanted to email home and let some family know how I was doing, so I set out to find a cybercafe. After some digging I learned that I could access possibly TWO computers on the whole island!! One was in town in a shop in Vaitape area. The other was in a roadside shack which turned into a seafood restaurant at night. Guess which one had a computer that worked?? Yep, the grass shack. We had driven by it several times before we noticed it. It's called the Blue Lagoon and on a very crude sign fashioned out of a piece of plywood read "Internet Cafe Ici". I was able to successfully email home using French Yahoo. My visit was in 2001, so now there may be some more internet acess on Bora Bora!
