What To Expect
Huahine is renowned for its village of Maeva, where all district chiefs once lived side by side and worshiped their ancestors at their respective marae. Marae are places including stone structures set aside for religious rites and ceremonies. Two hundred archaeological stone structures have survived centuries of natural destruction. These structures lie within yards of one another along the shore of Lake Fauna Nui and on the sacred and scenic Matairea Hill.
Also located in the village of Maeva, you will visit a vanilla plantation and learn how this plant cultivated and the beans prepared to become this treasure of flavor. The village of Maeva is also sheltering the remains of stone fish traps unique in French Polynesia. There are still fishermen using stone traps in the village.
You will pass a watermelon plantation, the most tasteful are from Huahine! A stop on a beach oceanside before visiting Marae Manunu where the tomb of Raiti, the last great priest of the village of Maeva, is located.
Visit Faie, the home of the sacred blue eyes eels before stopping by the belvedere view point on the bay of Maroe.
You will enjoy the view on the magnificent lagoon of Huahine from Mahuti Viewpoint before continuing the discovery of the island botany with your guide.
