Matira Beach would have to be one of the most beautiful places to swim. The water is so clear and shallow making it ideal for families or people like me who are not big beach swimmers, with beautiful white sand. There's also shade around and...More

We stayed at le moana and walked across to this lovely beach. It was beautiful and was very calm. Water is very shallow.

A very beautiful beach with warm shallow water and the ability to walk out quite a ways and explore the reef. Reef shoes are recommended to avoid encountering coral. Nice breezes as well.
