Awesome Beaches you have to visit: Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The French Polynesian isle of Bora Bora, floating in an archipelago in the South Pacific, is as close to tropical paradise perfection as you can get. Surrounded by a crystal-clear and super calm lagoon that boasts one of the world’s most brilliant turquoise and marbled azure water, the island is home to white-sand beaches and a lush interior of pointy volcanic peaks.
The best public beach on Bora Bora is Matira Beach. Here, the sand is white and powdery soft, and while it is popular with locals on weekends, unless a cruise ship is docked, it never gets too packed. The sunsets over the brilliant turquoise lagoon are legendary and should not be skipped.
There are numerous other beaches on Bora Bora and also the small islets (known as motus) surrounding it. On these, you’ll find some of the island’s most posh resorts, many of which feature the overwater bungalows that French Polynesia is best known for – they were actually invented on the neighboring island of Ra’iatea.
Bora Bora is the ultimate honeymoon destination, and if you can afford the splurge and the time it takes to get here (it’s an eight-hour flight from Los Angeles), it is well worth the effort.
