BORA BORA BEACH CLUB
Possible copyright infringement aside, Bora Bora beach club is a great option for when you want to experience those crystal, calm, Caribbean waters of the Rosario Islands. A private club located on a quiet side of Isla Grande, Bora Bora has been opened for about 18 months now and, to be honest (when are we not) it can be a very different experience depending when you go.
During the week, our experience has been that it is super chill and only ever partially full. Mostly attracting travellers, especially Europeans. During weekends it fills up more, and tends more towards an electronica vibe with big busted Colombianas in tiny bikinis and more groups than couples. Both can be great, depending what you are looking for.
In terms of what's on offer, it's pretty much just sun lounges and water. If you're me, this is perfect. If you're someone who gets bored easily, this might not be for you. Bora Bora is set on two tiers. The upper tier is accessed via a staircase and functions as a mini cliff overlooking the water, the lower tier has direct access to the beach and water and if the tide is out they will put umbrellas and lounges on the sand.
Your day pass costs 180,000 pesos pp and includes:
Transport via speedboat to and from the island
Lunch (the ubiquitous fried mojarra, patacón and rice. This is a very decent version. The other options are chicken or vegetarian)
On the day of your reservation:
Arrive to Muelle La Bodeguita to Gate 5 at 8:15am (if you arrive up to 8.30am it's still ok, but don't tell them I told you that). Upon arrival ask for Rafael who will help you sort out the marine taxes. You will be assigned boats based on the order of arrival.
You will need to pay marine tax of 17,000 pesos pp separately in cash. You will also pay Bora Bora directly for your daypass, but that can be done on the island and they will accept card.
The boat trip is about 45 minutes- 1 hour.
Things to know:
As with many of the Rosario Islands options, Bora Bora uses the standard speedboats that often pick up and drop off passengers going to the various islands. Yes, they can get crowded. Yes, the seas on the way home can get really rough, especially during seasons of high wind. Options like Gente del Mar and Aura have their own boats and so this problem is somewhat mitigated in those examples, so might be worth taking into consideration.
