Huahine Vacations & Travel Tips

Fast Facts

Huahine means “pregnant woman” in Tahitian. The hills above the main village resemble a pregnant woman lying peacefully gazing up to the sky.

Villagers and adventurous vacationers feed the sacred blue-eyed eels, which the islanders believe embody the souls of their ancestors. These friendly eels range from three to six feet long and have adapted to humans after years of contact. 

The ancient village of Maeva was the location of Huahine’s eight chieftainships and you’ll find ancient sacred communal spaces amid wild vanilla vines, breadfruit, banyan and other marvelous native flowers and trees.
