October is an excellent time to visit Bora Bora as it falls during the 'winter' dry season.
You can expect mainly clear, sunny skies with the very occasional rain shower that is generally short-lived.
Both air and water temperatures are cooler on average, with the southeastern trade winds bringing cool refresing breezes.
This is still considered the peak season in Bora Bora when flights and hotel rooms need to be booked well in advance. However, October offers a good combination of weather and availability of hotel rooms.
