An idyllic beach on Bora Bora, not far from Bloody Mary's bar. The day was overcast, but the crystal clear water was warm. We had a wonderful time here, but do be careful of the rocks underwater here - they can be quite sharp. There's some cafes along the beachfront. Make sure you have local currency or US dollars on...

Spent the morning on Matira Bearch to soft winds, warm water, aqua blue - paradise! This is a public beach, but since we were there on a weekday, not many others were around. Sat under a tree for shade, but got our sun in the water. Easy to get to taking local transport - $5 per person to and from... More

Matira Beach is a rare find. It's a tiny public beach that has the most immense horizon providing for some of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. The colors on any given evening can vary dramatically with the most sensational of colors and gradients. It's also a beach that is well-taken care of by the local municipality. I've swam... More

Matira Beach is the only public beach in Bora Bora and the locals spend lots of time there. We really loved watching the children swimming and playing in the water and the families heading out in their little boats with their picnics. We also enjoyed the little beachside family owned cafes for food and cold drinks. Matira Beach in Bora... More

In first place is the only beach in the main island so there is no other beach to go, but that doesn't matter because is a great place. Crystal clear water and white sand beach. The only thing is that the bottom of the sea is full of reef particles which makes it hard to walk barefoot in the water.... More

Don't know why anyone would say this beach is just ok. This beach is fantastic. No parking fee, no beach fee, no relentless beach vendors; beautiful sand, perfect water temperature, and shallowness of water extends far beyond the beach. Perfect place to appreciate a little R&R for an afternoon during your visit to Bora Bora without the high cost, which... More

To be honest, we found Bora Bora's beach scene a bit lacking. This beach was by far the best we found and was nothing special. It's nice for a short walk or swimming around and the Matira Beach Restaurant is a must.

Matira Beach is gorgeous & a public beach. The color of the water is so many shades of blue your eyes hurt! We took a taxi from the cruise tender pier for $5 USD each person (a bargain.) We found a gentleman renting a few padded loungers for $5 USD which were placed under the only trees lining the beach.... More

Ok, it's not the best beach I have ever seen but it's the best beach during our Tahiti-Mo'orea- Bora Bora trip.
