Tahuata cruise

Duration: 3 nights/4 days

Departure and arrival at Hiva Oa (Atuona)

Itinerary: Hiva Oa - Tahuata - Hiva Oa

The strong points: short and easy sailings suitable for everyone, deserted bays and dream beaches just for you.


D1. Arrival on board in the morning. We weigh anchor and go to Tahuata island. 1h30 of navigation. We spend the day in a wild bay. You will have the white sand beach all to yourself. Clear waters invite snorkeling to see reef fish and stingrays. Amazing views on the sunset.

D2. We will anchor in front of the village of Vaitahu. To see: the magnificent church and the small archaeological museum where the objects found in the valley are exhibited. There are 3 snack bars with wifi and 2 shops where you can have your snack at lunchtime. We leave in the afternoon for Hanamoenoa, one of the most beautiful bays in Polynesia. Swimming, snorkeling, idleness... as you see fit! You might see wild goats coming down to drink seawater at the end of the day or manta rays swimming in the bay.

D3. Navigation back to Hiva Oa in the morning (about 3h). You have the afternoon free. Your choice: visit the village of Atuona, the Brel - Gauguin museum and the tombs of the two artists. Or hike to the petroglyphs at the bottom of the valley. There is also my secret spot: a natural wave pool and its blower.
