This island is located in the Ahe Atoll, a favourite location of Bernard Moitessier, an icon among sailors and adventurers. This area is where Bernard Moitessier dropped anchor for awhile. Moitessier was a renowned French yachtsman and author of several bestselling books about his voyages and sailing. He was also an environmental activist against nuclear weapons in the South Pacific.

Moitessier circumnavigated the world and sailed almost two-thirds of the way round a second time, all non-stop and mostly in the roaring forties. Despite heavy weather and a couple of severe knockdowns, he contemplated rounding the Horn again. However, he decided that he had had enough and sailed to Tahiti.
