Bora Bora Nightlife & Entertainment

Long a favourite destination for honeymoon couples, Bora Bora is generally quiet after dark. There are only a few bars that stay open late, and to show off your dance moves you’ll need to go to Bora Bora’s only nightclub – Le Récife.

However, most hotels offer a traditional Tahitian dance show at least once a week and usually have a Tahitian band playing local melodies after sunset.

Bloody Mary's

This popular watering-hole and iconic island institution, named after the famous character in James A. Michener's Tales of the South Pacific and the musical South Pacific, has been serving American-style barbecued fish and steak for 30 years.

Come for lunch or dinner and sit on coconut stools under a thatched roof surrounded by exotic plants on a floor of sand.

The bar stays open late every night of the week except Sunday, with occasional music. Located in Paofai Bay.

Le Récife Discothèque

Bora Bora’s sole nightclub offers a cool place to drink and dance from 11pm to 3am (or later) on Friday and Saturday nights, with a mix of hip-hop, reggae, funk and rock.

The club, which is popular with a young, boisterous and local crowd, is located near Bora Bora Yacht Club, about 1km north of Vaitape.
