Well…this post is a month late and I only have an hour to post so here it goes : )
Town and the anchorage- Ua Poa is just south from Nuka Hiva and we planned to leave here to the next island group of the Tuamotus (a group of atolls…basically collapsed volcanoes).
Ua Poa is unique to the Marquesas islands that it has these huge spires. I am not a scientist and it has even been explained to me a few time but I will fail miserably to tell you why. The point is this island is to us the most beautiful bth for its majestic spires but also the peeple. The other Marquesas islands people were friendly but they seemed to be “tired” of the visitors, where in Ua Poa..we were welcomed in every aspect and were able to connect with so many locals…this is what we are here for!!!!
We were here in the main town with SV Me Too and SV Fandango and we have been with them ever since. We were here in Ua Poa for almost a week reprovisioning, laundry, eating well and the best part was the hike.
We will post our amazing trip to the next group of islands, the Tuamotus hopefully soon.
