Cover Story

 French Polynesia

Lacy breakers lap the coral reef that rings Bora-Bora, an ancient sunken volcano 165 miles [266 kilometers] northwest of Tahiti. With sugar white beaches edging its electric-blue lagoon, the island fits everyone's image of a South Seas paradise—but not everyone's pocketbook: Waterfront thatch huts go for up to [U.S.] $700 a night.
