Love the long white sandy beach, the crystal blue clear and clean lagoon waters of Matira or BoraBora in general. Nice place to spend the whole day at the beach with family; eating, swimming and sun bathing.
A nice almost empty beach with great water, a lot of space, pretty close to some of the Hotels. Shower, toilets.
5.Rendezvous Bay, Anguilla
This tiny island of 35 square miles, someway, somehow, has over 33 stunning beaches (Shoal Bay, Little Bay Crocus Bay), and over twelve miles of beautiful white powder sand. At Rendezvous Bay, beachgoers can find plenty of spots to lay down a towel, swim in calm waves, or snorkel in clear waters, and enjoy a stroll to nearby beach bars. It is worth noting that all of Anguilla’s’ beaches are public, uncrowded and unspoiled. One person stated:
“Many Caribbean islands would be grateful for just one of Anguilla’s estimated 33 powder-white beaches.”
A second added:
“I spent an entire day at Rendezvous Bay after landing on the island of Saint Martin. The view from the beach includes several other islands and the classic Caribbean scenery. There were lost of restaurants and bars right next door. It was one the most peaceful beaches I had ever been to, one more thing, the people of Anguilla are some friendly and helpful.”
