Baie du Controlleur is on SE corner of NukuHiva. The bay is 3 NM long what provide good protection before swell. The bay ends with 3 fingers, the west ends with small beach, the middle end nice village of Taipivai, the east end smaller village of Hooumi. It is possible
to anchor in each of them.
If you choice the E finger drop the anchor at position
08 deg 53.567 S and 140 deg 01.546 W (depth about 5m, mud and sand, good holding)
There is enough place for many yachts, 10 or more, usually there is just one. There could be some swell, specially when strong SE or S is blowing, but it is very safe place.
Dinghy landing is a little difficult. You can land on the beach, but if there is some swell could be a wet landing. On HW you can try to enter the river (on W side of the bay).
There is good potable water (spigots) located on the beach next to the small roofed structure to the east of the little river.
There are no groceries.

For crews

No shower or WC. No Wifi.
Town of Hooumi ahead of bay is wonderful. You can take a longer walk to the nex village of Taipivai(4km).
The beach is a favorite place of the locals and you may find a BBQ party on the weekends. There are no groceries, just a few houses. The walk up thru the valley on the paved road is


no fees for anchoring
