Natural beauty

Sights and sites

A little geography to begin with. Huahine is in fact not one, but two islands are joined together by a narrow sandspit at low tide. Iti means small in Tahitian and Nui means big, so Huahine Iti is the smaller island and Huahine Nui the bigger one. The two islands live together in perfect harmony in their shared turquoise lagoon. It is an extremely friendly place and you will be greeted with nods and smiles by the locals as you visit their archeological sites and marae. Don’t forget to see the giant eels at Faie with their blue eyes, but be careful, they’re sacred! Huahine, is Polynesia at its most authentic.
