Find out why this is one of Bora Bora’s most popular public beaches when you explore its exquisite white sands, gorgeous lagoon waters and waterfront precinct.

Matira Beach is a postcard-perfect sweep of pristine sand that stretches for a mile (1.6 kilometers) along Bora Bora’s southernmost tip. Soft white sands slope gently into the protected waters of the sapphire-colored lagoon at one of the island’s few public-access beaches. Spend the day relaxing under the shade of a coconut palm or explore the warm waters. With waterfront restaurants, boutiques and tour operators a short stroll away, there’s plenty to keep you occupied for an exciting day at Matira Beach.

Wander along the beach’s eastern shores and take in the views of the lagoon’s gentle waters. Backed by lush palms and forested hills, the beach is an idyllic spot to relax. Rent a sun lounge or spread out your towel and enjoy the sunshine. Coconut palms and beach umbrellas make Matira Beach a pleasant place for families to enjoy a beach day in the shade. Play in the warm and shallow waters or see if you can see the tropical fish that live in the lagoon’s deeper waters. At low tide, wade from Matira Point to the offshore barrier reef and discover beautiful corals with your snorkel and mask.

Check out Matira Beach’s waterfront dining options. There are snack stands, casual cafés and fine-dining establishments along the narrow Matira Point. As the light begins to fade, make your way to the western side of the point to find one of Bora Bora’s best sunset-watching spots. Relax with a cool drink and watch the sun sinking into the lagoon, throwing a blaze of orange light across the sky.

Matira Beach straddles either side of Matira Point, Bora Bora’s southern edge. The beach is easy to reach via public transport or taxi. Take a daytrip to the beach from your resort, hotel or cruise ship. Alternatively, pick from one of the hotels and resorts that line the point and enjoy easy access to this beautiful public beach. Many of these resorts have private beaches and watersports equipment rental. Matira Beach is free to visit at any time.
