Had the good fortune to stay at the Hotel Matira, and had a beachfront bungalow - it was divine waking up and going to sleep with the sound of the lagoon right in front. This wide expanse of beach is easy to walk, has the best swimming and snorkeling on the island - highly recommend a visit here!

Sparkling turquoise waters, white sand and palms - the dream of the South Seas comes true. Hardly anybody there and a few cafes for a drink or a snack.

Definitely a must go see. It is just stunning. The colours in the water, the cleanliness of the beach - so 'enticing'.

A great beach with crystal clear water. Matira is a popular area in Bora Bora, stop by the beach to soak up the sun and swim in crystal clear water.

There were practically no people during the weekday. The sand is wonderful - more powdery like a real beach and great for kids.

I think that the whole place has a lack of space.. The fact that it's in the main island is good, because you don't need sea tranfer. There are other beaches in Bora Bora with better view.

Amazing beach we ever see. the water is light green and clear. It is only beach that is free to access in the Bora Bora. We were down there via cruise tour. It is one of cheapest option to explore Tahiti region.

Not a very busy beach, at least it wasn't when we were there. We walked there from our resort just to visit and look at more of the beauty of the island :) there are a few beach restaraunts to eat for good prices.

This is, I believe, the ONLY public beach on Bora Bora. We went here one afternoon to relax and snorkel for a bit. The snorkeling towards the old Hotel Bora Bora (don't go on the property, you'll get kicked off) was decent but I didn't find the beach to be very peaceful at all. It was definitely a clean beach...
