Overlooked by luxurious resorts and atmospheric bars, Bora Bora’s southernmost tip is a narrow stretch of lush forest skirted by white sands and cerulean waters.

Experience one of Bora Bora’s most captivating destinations when you visit Matira Point. With its extensive beaches and easy access to waterfront shops, cafés and tour operators, Matira Point is the perfect spot to spend a day in the sunshine. Stay overnight at a resort on the idyllic promontory to get the best position for watching the island’s breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

Make your way to Bora Bora’s southern point and see the jaw-dropping views that have come to define the island paradise. Look out over impossibly blue lagoon waters to the tropical ocean beyond. Sit beneath the shade of a coconut palm and spend some time enjoying the mesmerizing view.

Wander up the eastern edge of the point to reach one of the island’s finest public-access beaches. The mile (1.6-kilometer) long stretch of Matira Point is a beautiful spot to explore. Swim in the shallow waters or wade across to the barrier reef at low tide. There is a collection of boutiques and gift stores along the point’s interior.

Due to its exposed position, Matira Point can often have a pleasant sea breeze. Try windsurfing or kitesurfing offshore and explore the windswept coastline. If the breeze has dropped, be sure to try canoeing or kayaking in the gentle waters.

Order a cool drink at one of the point’s casual cafés. You can also enjoy an upscale dining experience at one of the waterfront restaurants. Sip a cocktail under the shade of a thatched roof at the beachside bar. At the end of the day, climb the hill that rises from Matira Point to see a breathtakingly beautiful sunset view.

Matira Point is easy to reach by taxi or public transportation. Note that public transit stops and taxi fares increase in the evenings. Stay overnight at one of the point’s gorgeous resorts and laidback villas to wake up to unparalleled lagoon views. Matira Point is free to visit at any time of day.
