"Anau ? the most authentic Village" Top 5 Page for this destination Island Tip by Kakapo2
Island, Bora-Bora: 25 reviews and 26 photos
Anau on the east coast is the most typical village on Bora Bora because it is the most isolated settlement. It is built along a rocky stretch of coastline.
In the Hidden Guide I read that it is, I quote: ?not a terribly friendly place?. As we stopped for some minutes only I can neither agree nor tell you the opposite. It was hot, and nobody was around.
Our main interest was to have a look at the Protestant church (Eglise Protestante Maohi; Paroisse Sion, in Tahitian: Paroita Tiona/Anau).
Sunday mass is at 10am.
The three major churches on Bora Bora look like cloned, with their pointed red roofs, and the open porch in front of the entrance under the tower. Only the colours are different. Whereas the churches in Vaitape and Faanui have pastel colours, the one in Anau is white. And it is set on the lagoon-side, whereas the other two are on the mountain side, so they are set in front of the magic mountains and offer quite dramatic vistas.
