Bora Bora: The Problem with Paradise

For me it was the colors of the place: My eyes feasted on them. To go from the monochromatic slush of an Idaho December to the emeralds, jades, and sapphires of French Polynesia was like falling overnight into a color-saturated dream.

Le Taha'a, Motu Tautau, French Polynesia

The dirty secret of the tropical-island vacation is that the setting is so gorgeous, the experience so blissful, that the food—whether it’s ambitious, disappointing, or simply ho-hum—rarely lingers in the memory.
