This bay is where the little river of Taipivai (name of the village and the valley) flows into the Pacific Ocean. There are only a few houses around the bay, so there is a soft lighting by night as lots of planktons make the water phosphorescent. Fishes leave white trails in every sense such as shooting stars and the big manta rays print their shapes and wakes too.
It’s an exquisite and impressive show!
It is in Taipivai village, Herman Melville, an American sailor and writer of Moby Dick novel, spent 6 months with Typee natives’ tribe and its ferocious warriors.
Melville also wrote Typee and Omoo, classics novels which enable an excellent way to get closer of Marquesas life before colonization
