Huahine has protected its authentic roots from the outside world. This snapshot of "Old Polynesia" is a great place to take a deep breath and slow down. While not as luxurious as Bora Bora or Tahaa, if you are looking to recharge or escape from the modern world, there couldn't be a better place.


Huahine s divided into Huahine Nui and Huahine Iti (big and small) and surrounded by a wide, turquoise blue lagoon, with magnificent bays and white-sand beaches adding to the tropical experience.

There are circle roads on both portions of the island with a solitary bridge connecting them. Huahine is a great place to rent a car for a day and explore on your own. Stop at the grocery store in Fare and grab a few items for a picnic, then head south down the island. This island features a Belvedere point with amazing views, gorgeous beaches that are perfect for a picnic, several maraes (remnants of temples that once stood with stone floors and wooden pyramids) and more! To drive the entire island is about 30 miles – but be sure to leave some time for stops to enjoy the amazing views!

There are many exciting land and sea adventures to partake in while on Huahine. We have listed a few of our favorites below:

POE Lagoon Boat Tour with “Feet in The Water” Picnic (full day)

Have a day of adventure around the island of Huahine and its lagoon. Your guide will introduce you to the island’s legends and Faie’s famous eels before gliding along the lagoon to the coral garden and pearl farm. Let the water wash over your feet whilst you feast on delicious local delicacies prepared before your very eyes (you are welcome to muck in!) at lunchtime on the motu! Your day out also includes plaiting demonstration, fruit tasting and snorkeling.

4-Wheel Drive Safari Expedition (4 hours)

Your 4×4 driver will take you around the island and visit Maeva’s marae, Faie’s enormous blue-eyed eels and Maroe’s Belvedere for impressive views. You will also visit the only pearl farm on water and Huahine’s traditional fish parks. You will learn about the island’s culture and legends throughout the tour.

Sacred Sites and Legendary Places 4×4 and Walking Tour (3 ½ hours)

Set off on an educational exploration of the island and learn all about Polynesian geology, botany, anthropology, archaeology, sociology, economy, history and traditions. An American anthropologist who has lived in Huahine for many years will be your driver and will share his knowledge and experience with you.

Polynesian Immersion by POE, with lunch and SUV Tour – (Full Day)

What could be better than traveling through Huahine in a comfortable, air-conditioned, luxury SUV? Set off from the main village of Fare and visit the historic and archaeological sites around the village of Maeva which still harbors archaeological relics. Next, head to Faie and its river full of blue-eyed eels before enjoying a lunch of local fish at Poe’s home, specially prepared by her.

You will find the Huahine Yacht Club and Chez Guynette, both of which are with walking distance of the Maitai Lapita Village Resort.

Restaurants and Dining in Bora Bora and the Islands of Tahiti
We are often asked about the cost of food in Bora Bora and Tahiti. Food tends to be a bit expensive in French Polynesia. It is on par with dining out in New York, Los Angeles or Honolulu. If you are trying to stick to a preferred travel budget, regardless of how much you plan to spend, the cost of dining in French Polynesia should be considered in your travel and vacation planning.

Which Polynesian Islands and Hotels to Visit
Which islands to visit and how many islands you should visit depends a lot on how long you plan to stay in French Polynesia.We typically advise clients to spend at least 3 nights on each island in their itinerary (except possibly the Island of Tahiti). Spending less than 3 nights tends to make travelers feel too rushed. After all, you are going there to at least try to relax.

I wanted to say thanks for helping us set up an amazing trip. We are home safe & sound! Everything was wonderful-- I am so happy you recommended the Shark & Ray tour on Bora Bora-- it was by far our favorite thing that we did! We ended up relaxing on Taha'a as it was the most perfect place to unwind and get massages. All of the hotels were awesome-- Le Taha'a Resort and The Conrad were our favorites! We absolutely loved our beach bungalow (it was huge!!)
