I would say this is a lovely beach but the only thing I didn't like was that the sandy beach was not particularly wide, there was coral in the sea but as the water was so clear it wasn't a problem as you could see it.

One of the most gorgeous beaches I have been to and that is saying a lot since we just went to Hawaii. Make sure you visit this beach if you are on the island of Bora Bora. It is the only public beach, we went on a Monday & Tuesday and there was hardly anyone there. Beautiful,

The attraction is the clear blue shallow water which is amazing. A small beach mainly for local people who are nice and friendly. Try to avoid when a cruise ship is in as it can get very crowded. No real shade apart from an open building at the start. Also watch out for jet skis if you swim out towards... More

Located in the south of the island just in front of the Intercontinental Le Mooana Hotel has definitely the most amazing sunset in Bora Bora!!!

The clearest water I have ever seen on a beach. It is just a $5.00 taxi ride from where the cruise ships tender to. The water is warm and beautiful. Great place to spend the morning or part of the afternoon.

Long stretch of white sand, palms swaying in the sea breeze, water as blue as blue can be, pretty much paradise. There are many beaches on Bora Bora, this one is said to be the prettiest. We would agree that is until we arrive at the next beach...they are all pretty much romantic magnificent pieces of paradise.

Beautiful beach, but everywhere in Bora Bora is like a postcard really. The best thing about this beach is the restaurant on it! Matira Beach Restaurant Not to be missed...

Great white sand beach with restaurants and bars for food and drink. Ten dollar cab ride from the cruise dock. Well worth it as it is about ten k away.
