Some think that an over water bungalow stay represents the quintessential Bora Bora vacation. But we (secretly) know that a beach bungalow can be just as much fun. Imagine a pure, white-sand beach (which is usually empty) outside your front door, and the most beautiful lagoon in the world, sparkling all the way to the horizon.
You can't jump off your balcony into the water. But you can relish the soft sand underfoot, as you walk a few steps to the warm water. A beach bungalow in Bora Bora will cost half the price of an over water bungalow vacation. It's a great way to vacation in Bora Bora on a budget.
And the views? They are often just as spectacular as those from an over water bungalow!

Our favorite Bora Bora beach bungalows
There's such a variety of beautiful Bora Bora resorts, and each offers a different experience. Wondering how much you need to spend, and choosing between resorts, can be daunting for holiday hunters. So we'll show you our favorite bungalows on the beach in Bora Bora.
Intercontinental Le Moana Beach Bungalows
Le Moana beach bungalows blend charm with gleaming comfort
We love the Intercontinental Le Moana bungalows!
Their charming, airy interior integrates natural materials with artful, traditional skills of Polynesian craftsmen.
The surprise view of Mt Otemanu from our window (and bed) was a delight.
You can meander along the walkway, to Le Moana's beach bungalows, through flowering gardens.
Staying at Le Moana gives access to the attractions at it's sister resort, Intercontinental Thalasso, which is on a motu in the lagoon.
Le Moana is set on a stretch of white sand at Point Matira. Famous Matira Beach is Bora Bora's most popular beach. So there's many eating options, some shops, and a mini-market, all within walking distance.
Le Moana resort is imbued with an authentic Polynesian ambiance.
The Pearl Beach Resort's bungalows

We like the on-the-sand Pearl Beach Bungalows because:
The secluded location of the resort is special, and as it's shallow in this part of the lagoon, the water is calm.
These beach bungalows may have the prettiest panorama in Bora Bora. The spectacular view of the lush, green side of Mt Otemanu, shows the outline of the Valley of the King's walk.
The beach bungalows have been creatively designed utilizing island materials and traditional art forms, and with privacy in mind.
Huge hammocks strung between palm trees are awesome to relax in while trying to believe the views.
Pearl Beach Resort is set on a lush, garden island and features the skills of Polynesian craftsmanship. It is a 'Robinson Crusoe meets luxury' experience.
There are many activities available at the resort. You can even play mini golf under the palm trees!

Sofitel Marara Beach Bungalows

We like the Sofitel's beach bungalows because:
The Marara's beach is STUNNING, and you may have all of it to yourself.
It's the cheapest resort in Bora Bora where you can have a luxury vacation experience.
