The beaches on Mataking consist of fine, white coral sand and are clean, except for some dry leaves and branches every now and then. The sea water surrounding Mataking is crystal clear. Mataking lies at the edge of a coral reef measuring 4km from northwest to southeast. Swimming is a bit complicated a low tide due to the coral rocks in the water. The best beach is the sandbar connecting the islands, which however offers no shade. Mataking is beautiful and offers stunning views, especially at high tide when staying on the sandbar. The waters surrounding Mataking are rich in marine wildlife. It is easy to spot sea turtles.
