For boats

Usually this is a first stop for boats coming from Raiatea. Just after the corner of P.te Toamaro begins Baie Apu. There are more than 10 mooring buoy near the position:  
16 40.892S and 151 29.116W
 
Some mooring buoy belong to a local restaurant, some to pearl farm etc., any way pick up one of them, there are free (in my opinion, but I can be wrong).
 
This place is well protected from prevailing winds (NE-E-SE), but open for S winds, when staying there could be uncomfortable but still safe.
 
Dinghy landing
 
There are 3 small wooden wharfs around, best one is a short one in front of a restaurant at position:
 
16 40.882S and 151 29.013W
 
You can tie your dinghy there.
 
We stayed 4 nights on the mooring ball. The yacht club is closed, but there are still
moorings associated with it, yellow ones. Not sure of the maintenance schedule for
them. You can't land at the yacht club dock, tabu sign, and the American caretaker says
they closed the yacht club to do some improvements but have no plan.
 

For crews

There are few places to visit around:  
A Pearl Farm you will find near the main road (turn right when leave the wharf). If you visit before noon on Monday - Friday you can see them harvest the pearls from the oysters. Of course, they would like you to buy something, but not necessary. The products are high quality but expensive. Anyway it’s a nice place worth to visit.
 
The restaurant front of mooring buoys offer a night dinner with the buffet and sometimes a life dance performance. But you have to make a reservation few hours before. The cost is about 6000-7000 XPF, depends how many persons. During the day they offer many non alcoholic and alcoholic drinks.
 
There is also a small boutique / souvenir shop (green small house) with some souvenirs, ice creams and soft drinks.
