  Opunohu bay
by Helga67

This bay is the more unspoiled bay of the two bays. It is here where Captain Cook actually achored in 1769 and where the movie "The Bounty" was filmed.
It is the Polynesians' favorite bay because it is less populated, and has small secluded beaches.

Directions: North side of the island
