Bora-bora Island.

I'll be there, someday.

Details

Bora Bora, located about 160 miles northwest of Tahiti and approximately 2,600 miles south of Hawaii, was discovered in 1722, and is arguably the most beautiful island on the planet

Its ancient name of Vava'u suggests that the original inhabitants of this seven-million-year-old island arrived from Tonga.

And interestingly, in the local Tahitian language there is no "B," so its actual name is then Pora Pora, meaning "first born.
