We just had to stop at this place. We’d read about it in all the cruiser guides. It’s a very small village on the northern coast of Hiva Oa. Why stop? Well there’s a man named William here who is the founder of the Hanaiapa Yacht Club. HYC is really just a name he calls his home. He even has an HYC sign at the end of his driveway.
William was born here and at 70 years old knows everything about the village and island. He loves to meet people from other parts of the world so he invites yachties to stop in and visit. We absolutely LOVED meeting William and we’re certain you will too!
