The Top Things to Do in Huahine

Huahine, known as "The Garden of French Polynesia", is one of the most natural and peaceful places in the Society Islands archipelago.

Almost halfway between Tahiti and Bora Bora, visitors here won't find the large international resorts that dot the country's most popular destinations, but the abundance of natural beauty and friendly local residents make this one of the dreamiest corners of the South Pacific.

In fact, made up of two nearby islands, Huahine Nui (Great Huahine) to the north and Huahine Iti (Little Huahine) to the south, Huahine has some of the most distinctive landscapes in French Polynesia.

Huahine Nui and Huahine Iti share a lagoon surrounded by a coral reef, and sometimes the islands' hidden inlets and inlets make the lagoon feel more like a mountain lake than a tiny point in the vast ocean.

With only eight small towns and no traffic lights, the vibe here is languid - anything faster than a meandering pace feels downright strange.

Take a Tour of the Island

You can take a land or sea tour of the island with a tour operator, although some companies combine the two in one trip.

Most marine excursions include snorkeling in the coral gardens near Motu Mahare and a picnic on the beach.

If you opt for an overland tour, you'll usually stop at an art gallery or pearl farm, a vanilla plantation, and various lookouts.

Depending on where you are staying, tours can be arranged through the hotel's concierge desks or by asking a guesthouse owner (guesthouse in Tahiti).

Some tours require a prior reservation as they have minimum participation required to operate.

Feed the Sacred Eels

In the village of Faie, a bridge crosses a freshwater stream filled with eels.

Eels, which have blue eyes and are considered sacred in local mythology1, are perhaps the most important celebrities on the island.

They are known to be quite tame and pay close attention to visitors, especially if they brought canned mackerel from a nearby stall to feed them.

Most tours of the island stop to visit the eels; Self-guided visitors should look for the bridge over the small stream in Faie, roughly in front of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Visit the Shell Museum

The Motu Trรฉsor museum has more than 500 shells belonging to various species of crustaceans from French Polynesia.

A one-hour presentation in English and French covers the habitat and behavior of many crustaceans; During this time, you will learn to identify which shellfish bites, which ones are poisonous, and how to handle the shells if you find them with their inhabitants inside.

This is also a good place to buy Tahitian pearls; the owner is also a professionally trained jeweler.
