Bora Bora's currency is the French Polynesian Franc (XPF). US dollars are widely accepted. There are banks and ATM's in town though banks may not be open on Sunday.

Local Transportation

You can sign up for tours at the pier including lagoon cruises and circle island tours. Various companies offer shuttle services to Matira beach or Bloody Mary's for $5 USD one way. You can rent a car in Vaitape as well. Tours can also be arranged on shore.
