What a beautiful spot this is. Not for surfers, it's just a swimming beach, safe and shallow it would be perfect for teaching kids to swim or for novice snorkellors. Fantastic water temp and the colour is amazing. Apparently it's the only public beach on...More

Love the beach, water was blue and clear. Very relaxing day. My only complaint is the prices charged to do any thing in Bora Bora made it a very expensive place to visit. Found Moorea near by island just as pretty and a lot more...More

We spent a day here to get away from our resort bungalow, the water is so clear here, tons of coral and fish. Watch out for sea urchins though!

The beach is nice and clean. Great for snorkeling too. It's not too busy during my visit yesterday. The beach access is across the street from Intercontinental Hotel. There is parking too. I encourage you to check it out when visiting the Matira.

This beach is absolutely stunning. My partner and I spent a full day here and it was totally worth it. Crystal clear water, stunning view, and not too crowded (you've got to find the spot that suits you best though). If you stay in Bora...More

Since you're staying in Matira I suggest stop by the 2 supermarkets in the town of Vaitape ( Super U or Chin Lee). I am sure it will be less expensive versus buying it from the hotel.
