Days of wine, orchid petals, and blissful beaches: T+L readers voted on their dreamiest island escapes.

No. 2 Bora Bora, French Polynesia

19 of 21

The beaches alone on this French Polynesian island were enough to make readers’ cheeks flush. Bora Bora ranked highly for its natural beauty, with crystal-blue lagoons perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, or just gazing—especially if there is a window in the floor of your overwater bungalow. We recommend the Four Seasons Bora Bora, which features 100 overwater lodgings, many with views of Mt. Otemanu. The hotel’s spa is also worth a visit; in its couples’ treatment room, you can get scrubbed with Tahitian black pearl powder and locally sourced vanilla. Even from the massage table, guests get a view of the waters below.
