Maré’s Roh Tribe has been hosting the annual Wajuyu Fair (the local word for ‘red snapper’) in November for the last 12 years. Prized for their firm flesh and delicate, sweet flavour, red snappers are the focus for a popular weekend of festivities. The Wajayu Fair is the perfect time for a delightful stay in Maré sharing in the customs and lifestyle of the islanders and sampling luscious fish, crabs and shellfish freshly caught by Maré’s skilled fishermen.
