> South Pacific > Tahiti

Features: Least explored of the Society Islands, Huahine is a peaceful place where the traditional Polynesian way of life continues.

Spectacular scenery, rivaling any on Moorea or Bora Bora, Huahine is actually two islands set in one lagoon and circled by a coral necklace. With its powdery white sand beaches, Huahine is considered to be the cradle of ancient Polynesian culture. Fascinating artifacts and important archaeological sites can be found here.

Lodging:

Sofitel Heiva Huahine

Tucked between two sandy beaches on a crystalline lagoon, the Sofitel Heiva Coralia is set in an idyllic garden, harmonizing perfectly with the local environment. The 61 rooms include garden, beachfront, and overwater bungalows. Activities include horseback riding, all water sports, canoeing, and swimming in the resort’s pool. The Heiva is Huahine hospitality at its best.

Relais Mahana

The most secluded of the hotels on the island, the Relais Mahana is located on a superb white sand beach. Set on the southern end of the island with just 22 Tahitian bungalows, this resort is ideal for a casual quiet relaxed getaway. The resort has a swimming pool and tennis.

Activities:

Jeep Safari

Discover Huahine in a four wheel drive passing plantations, fording streams, and venturing into the natural wild interior. You will climb high above the lagoons and bays to see inspiring views of Huahine’s wonders.

Surfing

The world famous Ava Mo’a Pass offers some of the finest surfing in all of French Polynesia.

Horseback Riding

Huahine has wonderful trails for horseback riding. This can be arranged through your hotel.

Lagoon Excursion

The lagoon excursion offers magnificent views of Huahine and several tiny uninhabited island, a truly special day on the cobalt blue waters of the South Pacific.
