Marina Apooiti

Located on the northern shores of Raiatea Island, the picturesque harbour of Marina Apooiti offers the travelling yachtsman the perfect start to his charter; with a wide variety of restaurants and upbeat bars to be found, a day spent here is sure to get your sailing adventure off on the right tack.

The second largest island in French Polynesia, Raiatea boasts lush green valleys filled with pineapple and vanilla plantations, stunning waterfalls, and a beautiful tropical lagoon teaming with diverse marine life darting in and out of its stunning coral gardens. Its rocky coastline offers drift diving in the passes and a 19th century shipwreck to explore. Discover the slower pace of Polynesian lifestyle as you wander from village to town soaking in the atmosphere and treasures of this exotic island.

For a cultural fix, take a visit to Raiatea’s best-preserved historical site, Taputapuatea. Now considered a national monument, this immense archaeological area provides a fantastic glimpse into the rich Polynesian past and is filled with dozens of Marae and shrines to explore. Visit the colourful bustling market in Uturoa, Raiatea’s largest town, where you can see the local catches of the day beautifully displayed, stock up on fresh provisions and pick up a souvenir or two from the artisan craft stalls.

Head down to the enchanting harbour and Fishermans Wharf for a spot of lunch; choose from traditional Polynesian or French inspired restaurants to the more surprisingly popular Chinese influenced cuisine. After a hard day’s relaxing, make your way back to Marina Apooiti for the first sundowner of your holiday and a peaceful nights rest as you dream about what tomorrows adventure will bring.
