Absolutely wonderful white sand and turquoise clear water where you can see colorful fishes and stingrays so take you snorkel mask for swimming under water. There are some restaurants around with delicious local delicacies and Hinano. My favorite. Highly recommend!!!!

This is a wonderful beach on Bora Bora, also I think the only beach. We had a great time grabbing some beers in the little restaurant by the parking lot and running along the water. Great for some people watching too (both locals and tourists).

small, public beach. Signage not obvious. Most beautiful beach I've been to. No amenities outside of a public restroom.

We stayed right next door to Matira Beach and walked the beach several times. It's a great place to find calm, shallow water for swimming, but there's not much to see for snorkeling. It's also a great place for sun bathing closer to Matira point....More

The water here is absolutely beautiful and enticing. The white sand beaches provide the perfect foreground to the turquoise waters. We stopped by here during our 4x4 tour with Vavau and captured some great photos on the beach! If you're staying in the resorts nearby,...More

Beautiful beach with clear water. The problem is that the water is very shallow and the seabed is covered with innumerable pieces of broken corals. So if you want to reach the deep water, you must walk a long distance stepping on the corals and...More
