The island is also home to lush tropical forests and majestic mountains, which offer a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and ATV tours.

These resorts offer an array of luxurious amenities such as overwater bungalows, private beaches, and spas.

Speaking Part 3 Follow-Up Questions to Describe an island you would like to visit

Here are a few potential follow-up questions for Part 3 of the IELTS speaking exam related to the topic of an island you would like to visit:

  1. Describe something about an island?
    • One thing that I find particularly interesting about islands is the unique biodiversity that they often have. Because islands are isolated from the mainland, they often have a different variety of plants and animals that have evolved separately from those on the mainland. This can make for some fascinating natural landscapes and wildlife viewing opportunities.
  2. Have you visited an island in your past life?
    • No, I have not visited Bora Bora in my past life, but I would love to visit in the future for its natural beauty, luxury resorts, and cultural experiences.

    • I have not yet been to Bora Bora, but I hope to visit in the future because of its stunning turquoise lagoon, lush tropical forests, and luxury resorts. I would also like to experience the culture of French Polynesia firsthand through traditional Polynesian dances, music, and art.
