Being relatively small, there is no specific information whether The Bora Bora Airport has a lounge or not. However, given the fact that single terminal is open-air and once you get off the plane, you are welcomed by the beautiful Tahitian sounds that can be heard immediately.

At the same time, the amazing landscape that is right in front of you is surely going to be much better than any VIP lounge from other airports.

Shops, Bars and Restaurants

Places where you can eat, drink and shop aren’t mentioned in travel guides, however you can probably find some at the Bora Bora Airport terminal upon arrival. If not, in 25 minutes you will reach Vaitape by boat and find enough restaurants and bars there.
