If you are looking for a place on the water, this tropical island in French Polynesia has taken the concept to a whole other level — literally! The first over-the-water bungalows started appearing about 30 years ago and have been gracing postcards and screensavers ever since. At the center of Bora Bora is an extinct volcano. Surrounding it are placid lagoons sheltered from the sea beyond by a barrier reef. Dive with manta rays and snorkel along the reefs. With consistently nice tropical temperatures throughout the year, this scene is the antithesis of Old Man Winter.
