you might consider anchoring, most people do that. If you are in the lagoon, its packed but fun. the French side is best for anchoring outside the lagoon. I had to leave for a couple of months and the boat stayed at the suggested marina, and it is very good. The water is dirty in the lagoon and stuff grows fast on the bottom, also the airplanes make a mess of the boats constantly flying overhead. Anchor out, and dingy in to the lagoon, if you want to stay there and find a spot that is not to shallow, etc. there is a good reason why there are some open spots in the anchorage. If you anchor out the water is clean and you can swim etc..
a fast and reliable dingy is critical.
