The Worlds Best Beaches - Matira Beach

French Polynesia is peppered with stunning islands and gorgeous beaches, and one of the most popular is Matira Beach on Bora Bora. This pearl of the South Pacific has everything a tropical beach lover could ever whish for, and offers an unforgettable setting for lazy sun-drenched days and romantic nights.

"The lagoon here is extremely shallow, and the overwater bungalows that extend out into the water look spectacular against the turquoise water. However, the lagoon is too shallow for swimming from the beach although there's reasonable snorkelling further out." (Pacific-travel-guides.com)
