For boats

The passage south to this bay should be navigated with care. Follow the markers, with red cylindrical beacons to the shore side of you. At the entrance of the bay, the area is shallow with coral heads (but not less than 6 m). Once past the point which marks the start of Baie Avea, there is plenty of water with an average depth throughout 10 to 15 meters. The bay is well protected except during strong southerly and westerly winds (rare).
At the east end of Baie Avea, the inner passage comes to an abrupt end and the barrier reef meets the island at Pte Tiva.
A pleasant anchorage is in the east end of the bay, at position:

For crews

Visit a beach and take some rest. Swimming around is also cool.  
Along the beach there is some corals with many fishes. Try and have fun. We had.
On the eastern side of the bay is a charming hotel and restaurant, the Relais Mahana, with a good dinghy dock. From here, you may rent a car and tour the island.
