The best water and only public beach on the island. Not much to do but chill. Bring your water shoes and towels and enjoy but make sure you have the taxi pick you up and a predetermined time or drive a rental car. There is...More

Just sitting in the water watching the sunset with the locals is special enough for me with the magical sunsets.

The beach is great, and the snorkeling was good. But you'll never have as good of snorkeling from a sandy beach as you will from an off-shore dive over the reef. More importantly, I discovered great taxi service provided by Thierry ("Jerry") Nauta. I had...More

The beach was nice but quite narrow by our Florida standards. Still very nice and not crowded at all considering this is the only public beach on Bora Bora.

This is a great public beach with bathroom and shower facilities. There are also a couple of good restaurants in walking distance. You may want to bring water shoes as the coral/rocks can be a bit painful. It is a good place to watch sunset.

We visited Matira Beach on the weekend and on a weekday. There were a few more people on the weekend but lots of space and no feeling of a crowd. The sand is white and clean, the water clear and it is a public beach!...More

Very nice beach with a few places to eat along the beach. Many spots to enter the water or just grab a tan. One can head out pretty far and be in waist deep water. As with all spots in Bora Bora, I felt safe...More

Matira beach is about a 10minute scooter ride from the dock area. Le Bus travels there as well but we rented a scooter and rode around the island and had a nice swim at the beach in 2hours. We stopped here on Celebrity Solstice so...More

I can't speak to that specific cruise. However, the restaurant is a significant drive from the waterfront in town. Cabs are available, and the restaurant will often offer to pick you up for a reservation.
