With a luxe escape to Bora Bora potentially costing you over $10,000 for accommodation per night alone (have you seen the Four Seasons Resort?! It’s what postcards were MADE for!) Bora Bora may be a little beyond your budget. This doesn’t mean you can’t live like royalty on a pristine beach while on holiday. There are plenty of other island paradises out there that are just as postcard-worthy for a fraction of the price. Here are our top picks of enviable and affordable places similar to Bora Bora but cheaper. We have added deals too that could help you save.
Found surrounded by the clear, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean off the coast of West Africa, the Seychelles is home to 115 islands. The little bits of paradise host soft-sand beaches, lush tropical forests and, of course, luxurious resorts.
One of the first destinations that comes to mind when you think of words like ‘paradise’ and ‘exotic’, this chain of more than 1,000 coral atolls is renowned for it’s perfect blue lagoons, colourful reefs and incredible overwater bungalows.
With its similar French Polynesian heritage, turquoise waters and white beaches, you’ll be hard-pressed to find the difference between the Cook Islands and Bora Bora. Getting to paradise soon? #winning.
What’s not to love about Indonesia? From its enviable beaches and its relaxed vibe to its rich history and exotic appeal.
While not the cheapest destination on this list, Panama is very much comparable to what you’ll expect from Bora Bora. That is, it sports islands for days, soft white sands and an exotic atmosphere.
Seeking an exotic island escape with pristine beaches that won’t blow the budget? Try Cambodia. Unlike its neighbour Thailand, it isn’t too overrun with tourists.
When it comes to beach destinations, Malaysia is less likely to be the first name that flies off your tongue, but sitting so close to Indonesia it shares some of its idyllic landscape. Glam it up in Penang or save your pennies in Langkawi. For your next trip, naturally.
Hailed as having some of the best islands in the world (Boracay, Cebu and Palawan to name a few), the Philippines has more than 7,000 islands waiting for you to explore, each with its own highlights from crystal clear waters and powder-soft beaches to historical monuments and cultural encounters.
