Huahine, the cradle of ancient Polynesian culture, is a tropical paradise of incredible scenic beauty. A 40-minute flight from Tahiti, Huahine is home to many archeological sites, pristine beaches, lush forests and quaint villages with friendly locals. It is composed of two islands in one deep, crystal-clear lagoon, connected by a short bridge. Big Huahine, in the north, with its bustling village of Fare, is where you’ll see plantations of vanilla, bananas and melons, and 300-year old stone fish traps that are still used today. In the village of Faie, you can feed mackerels to the sacred blue-eyed eels. Little Huahine to the south, rugged and isolated, offers the best beaches with a variety of water and land activities. Discover the underwater world with its reef walls, caves, coral gardens and amazing marine life by diving or aboard a glass-bottomed boat. Sunset cruises, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding and guided nature walks in the hills are available as well.
