Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Haley Kalil enjoyed taking in the sunset in Bora Bora and she was quick to share the beautiful views with her followers on Instagram.

“Take me back to Bora Bora please and thanks ?,” she captioned a photo of herself posing in front of the sun setting over the ocean.

In the series of photos, the model also shared some of her favorite things to do in Bora Bora.


When taking a trip to Bora Bora, take a page out of Kalil’s book and stop at a flower crown vendor. These flower crowns, or Tahitian headpieces, aren’t just beautiful creations for tourists. Locals wear elaborate headpieces for special occasions, and sometimes can even be seen wearing simple flower crowns in everyday life. They are often made with native flowers, such as hibiscus, plumeria and the iconic Tiare flower. Flower crowns are also often offered at resorts or on tours around the islands.

There is no tropical paradise vacation without water sports. Kalil took it a step past the usual paddleboarding, snorkeling and sailing that most people enjoy. The model gave flyboarding a try. A flyboard is like a hoverboard, but elevates the person in the air using water jet propulsion. The rider wears a pair of boots connected to a hose which can elevate a person 45 feet in the air. Most report that flyboarding takes around 30 minutes to learn how to balance six feet above the water, and be aware that this is a pricey hobby. Flyboards run between $4,000 and $6,000.
