Initially we anchored the boat in a bay on the east coast. I am unable to find a name for it.
The entrance is easy and well marked with greens and reds, so no problems there. Pushing on into the bay through the narrow entrance opens out into a wide and long bay with depths of 35m plus. On the south side is a small village with a dock and a restaurant with good food. You can anchor there in about 15m behind a marked reef.
After lunch we motored back towards the entrance, but turned south into a cut sheltered by a sand island. You need to keep an eye on depths here and sand spits stick out. The cut is a pass and is marked with buoys as well.
We anchored for a very peaceful night in about 10m in good holding sand.
Next day we sailed round to Fare. Picked up one of about half a dozen moorings belonging to the Huahine Yacht Club, a bar and restaurant with a dinghy dock. Good food and cold beer with a happy hour.
The town is small with a good supermarket, 2 banks, a pharmacy and a range of small shops.
Being on the Lee side we all found the nights warm and sleep difficult. Also there are mossies around.

All in all a good stopover on a lovely island.
