Matira Beach, Bora Bora

4.4
#1 of 9 in Beaches in French Polynesia
Relax at Matira Beach, where the soft, powdery sand invites sunbathers and the clear waters offer a great spot for swimmers and snorkelers. Consider taking a jet ski out into the calm bay for a different perspective, and to view the island from the sea. Set on a more secluded part of the island, the paradisal beach is still easily accessible by car and on foot. Accommodations and restaurants provide options for extending your stay.

    Love the beach, water was blue and clear. Very relaxing day. My only complaint is the prices charged to do any thing in Bora Bora made it a very expensive place to visit. Found Moorea near by island j...  more »

    We spent several days at the Matira hotel in 1 bungalow, which is located at the Matira beach. The beach is long and has a very fine white sand. And he is approached carted real, not like in the expensive resorts out there on the Motus. There is a nice restaurant on the beach. The water is also little deep until very well, you can go walking to fast on the reef. At past stingrays swim and there are a few a few colored fish and quite a few almost transparent, first seen over. In the off season almost empty, except when a cruise ship just stops.

Where to stay in Bora Bora

The quintessential Bora Bora experience, a favorite among honeymooning couples, is to stay at a luxury resort, in a thatched bungalow sitting just above the tranquil waves of a turquoise lagoon. Such opulence doesn't come cheap, but shoestring travelers do have other affordable options here. Pensions (family-run boarding houses) offer the best value, making up for any lack of extravagance by leaving you plenty of money to spend exploring the idyllic island. Hotels in Vaitape offer a middle ground between budget-saving pensions and splurging on a resort.
