Taravana Yacht Club Tahaa

Just a short hop north inside the barrier reef from Raiatea lays the tropical island of Tahaa and the sailors paradise of Taravana Yacht Club. As you navigate your way through the sparkling South Pacific waters the unmistakable sweet aroma of vanilla floats gently towards you on the balmy breeze. Locally known as ‘Vanilla Island’ for its magnificent vanilla plantations, this lush-green isle is charmed by rolling mountain shapes and glistening sand beaches.

Located on the southern tip of the island, the exclusive hideaway of Taravana Yacht Club provides a welcome refuge from the warm Polynesian sun and a fantastic point from which to explore the rest of the isle. With a superb French restaurant offering the finest haute cuisine of locally caught fresh fish and seafood delicacies, and a well stocked bar presenting stunning views out across emerald waters; its easy to see why this tranquil spot has become a favourite haunt for the visiting yachtsman.

Take the opportunity to visit the nearby black pearl farm, where you can see up close how these unique treasures are cultured from the large Black Lip Oysters and then handcrafted into exquisite pieces of jewellery. Further around the coast towards Haamene Bay you’ll find the sea turtle reserve sanctuary where you can observe these wonderful creatures within their own natural habitats.

Before dusk, head back to the yacht club for a well-deserved sundowner and sit back and relax whist gazing at the beautiful Polynesian sunset and listen to the crescendo of local drums beating as you plan your next days adventure.
