While many couples are content to bask in the sun on their bungalow’s private deck, those seeking a change of venue can arrange a number of short jaunts. The overall look and feel of the neighboring islands is similar to, but not nearly as dramatic as, Bora Bora, so if you want to stay put, you won’t miss much.
