Stunning Bora Bora White-Sand Beaches

Unrivalled luxury, secluded white-sandy beaches and magnificent lagoon make BoraBora make it an obvious destination for a dream beach holiday.

Most of Bora Bora’s beaches are privately owned, and thus the accommodation you choose will determine the private beach that you have access to. Many resorts are located on the motus that surround Bora Bora’s main island, which is where some of the area’s most beautiful white-sand beaches can be found.

There is one public beach on Bora Bora’s main island, called Matira Beach. Running east and west of Matira Point on Bora Bora’s southern tip, Matira Beach is Bora Bora’s largest public beach.

Matira Beach is the paradise you’ve always dreamed of, with soft white sands, turquoise waters and palm trees creating cool, naturally shaded areas. There are dozens of hotels, shops, snack bars and restaurants located within walking distance of the beach. Its relatively shallow lagoon is ideal for snorkeling, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, and other water activities. Matira Beach faces west, making it one of the best spots on the island to watch Bora Bora’s colorful sunset.
