Town of Maroe
Bridge between the islands
Anchored in the Bay
Wharf and welcoming band
Captain Cook visited Huahine in 1769 and again in 1773. We visit and wander down the road through lush tropical vegetation.
At the dock and down the road, small stands sell pearls and crafts to the few of us who have come ashore.
Island shops (for tourists)
We're fascinated by the small boats (in every conceivable condition) scattered everywhere along the shore.
Back at the wharf, we admire more of the beautiful tropical flowers and vegetation.
After a day of relaxation, we raise our anchor and head out the narrow channel from Maroe Bay, past small motus scattered around the entrance to the bay.

As we depart Huahine to return to Pape'ete, the sun sets spectacularly, rewarding us at the end of a lazy day
