Temanuata Beach Bungalows French Polynesia is one of the few budget style accommodations in Bora Bora. This pleasant beach property is located a few minutes stroll to popular Matira Beach and offers great value for money for those not looking for the trims of resort living. The property fronts a narrow south facing beach (no sun in early morning or late afternoon) protected by a sea wall. The landscaped gardens are split by a garden path, with a line of 5 bungalows either side extending from the coastal road to the beach.
