Bora Bora: Matira Point Beach
Matira Beach is just a short walk away from beachside boutiques, snack bars, restaurants and several four- and five-star resorts, including the Novotel Bora Bora Beach Resort and the Sofitel Bora Bora Beach Resort.
Unwind on a narrow crescent of powder-white sand that shelves gently into a sandy bottomed sheltered lagoon that is just perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Coconut palms offer the perfect spot to relax in the shade – preferably in a swaying hammock – and the nearby, iconic Bloody Mary's bar and restaurant (on the west side) offers the chance to savour a lunch (snack or diner) of freshly caught wahoo – an essential Bora Bora experience.
Go swimming, snorkeling, water skiing, tubing and kayaking or climb the hill at Matira Point for some of the best views over the lagoon to Bora Bora's stunning hills and mountains, including Motu Tuu Pua and Mount Otemanu.
Located on the eastern side of a sandy peninsula that stretches south to Matira Point on the southern tip of Bora Bora, Matira Beach is easily reached from Vaitape by car or Le Truc.
Both sides of Matira Point, an idyllic sandy 1.5km-long peninsula, offer gorgeous beaches – the only continuous stretch of powder-white sand on the island.
The east side of Matira on crescent-shaped Pofai Bay is world-famous for its luxurious resorts that merge overwater bungalows with powder-white sandy beaches in an idyllic tropical south seas setting.
Matira Point offers an excellent selection of 4- and 5-star resorts including the InterContinental La Moana Resort Bora Bora.
