Sunsets are amazing!

Love the views of the sunsets from the beach! Sandy beach and the water is warm and clear! Many area restaurants are located close by!

Stopped here to take in the sights. The water is as warm as the bath and you can venture out for yards and still only have the water to your waist. Sting rays pass by and shell hunting is hit or miss. Not much coral around so snorkeling can be skipped here.

We were in search of this great beach when we went to Bora Bora but drove right past it -- because it didn't seem that great. The pictures are better than the place. Sand is not soft to walk on and it is not a long beach -- longest on Bora Bora however

So you have come all the way to Bora Bora; then go see Matira Beach. World renowned, with nice white beaches. Very shallow water (reef shoes recommended), plus a few restaurants to frequent. Go see the sunset there for sure!

Looking for a place to swim in the beautiful bora bora waters? This is a nice place. Close to restaurants and a small grocery.

Lovely beach and virtually deserted every time we went. Nice white powder sand and several trees for shade once the suns rays become too much. Snorkelling not great, but fun and easy for those who don't have perfect swimming skills. Saw some interesting fish.

We were fortunate to be staying at the IC LeMoana Resort that next to this beautiful long strip of white sand beach in lagoon. We found the beach in evenings to be a great spot to watch incredible sunsets. This is a must see.

We visited in Feb /March and lucked out to see no rain as still is the rainy hot season. The upside is of course a deserted beautiful beach with more than fifty shades of blue lagoon water! A range of snack outlets and beach restaurants cater if you get hungry!
