Matira Beach, Bora Bora

4.4
#1 of 37 in Parks 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.

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.
