Huahine, French Polynesia-port

One of the most picturesque and geographically diverse islands in the Society Group, Enclosed in a single lagoon, it covers 75 square miles. Huahine is located 109 miles northwest of Papeete. The highest point on the island, Mt. Turi, reaches 2,200 feet and is located on Huahine Nui. Mt. Tavaiura in the Fitii Peninsula looks like a women's face, leading to her chest and her round belly, hence one of the interpretation for Huahine's original name (pregnant woman).

"Discover the small and delightfully quiet little island of Huahine where you will discover Maeva, one of the most important archaeological sites in Polynesia.

Traveling from the pier you will first visit a small ""Vanilliere"" where you will learn about the drying process of this famous and widely used fragrance. If you like, you may wish to purchase some as a souvenir. Next, you will visit Maeva, a well-preserved archaeological site known as a Polynesian marae.

As your tour progesses, you may also see ancient fish traps that were built centuries ago which locals still use today. Huahine is also very famous for its blue-eyed eels that populate a small river stream in the village of Faie. Before heading back to the pier, a stop at the Belvédère will give you a great opportunity to capture some stunning photographs.
