We are staying at Le Moana Resort, just across from this beach, where the Trade Winds are constantly blowing, (now in July) and this beach has no wind at all. It is a public beach and is kept clean and tidy by the local council workers. The water is only about a metre deep, for as far as you can... More

The place to go within walking distance form the intercontinental, the Mai Tai and the Sofitel hotels. Right on the beach there is a small bar/restaurant with a few tables on the deck and a couple of long tables and benches on the beach where an old lady prepares your food however you like it. It's not fancy at all;... More

Matira beach is one of my most favorite places ever. It is a nice long beach and never seems crowded. Closer to the point it is white sand and miles of shallow lagoon perfect for wading, while a bit north there is great snorkeling with a nice coral garden and a deep trench with big fish and lots of coral....

If you want to see the sunset you have to go to the public beach. Not crowded during our stay and it was nice to see some locals. Good place to walk.

There are not so many tourists which made it so much better. No Problem finding a nice spot. The sea is so warm and clear and with the numerous Tropical fish... well.

This is a public beach, running from the Hotel Bora Bora to Matira Point, so there were beach goers when I strolled along the white sand in the morning. And when I later came to watch the spectacular sunset, I had plenty of company. The beaches at both ends of Matira Beach are privately owned. The sand here is white.... More

Matira Beach is the nicest beach on Bora-Bora main-island with fine sands and clear water - wear reef-shoes!

We chose to stay at the Inter Continental Le Moana because of the location right across from Matira Beach. We walked over in the mornings to eat breakfast so that we could see the gorgeous views of the beach. Watched local family activities that made it very interesting. Sat in the evenings to see the fabulous sunsets! Would definitely choose... More
