Often unexplored and overlooked, Huahine is a culturally preserved paradise with a beauty that rivals both Moorea and Bora Bora. Considered to be the cradle of ancient Polynesian culture, Huahine is home to many important archaeological sites. The former royal village of Maeva safeguards several fascinating artifacts, including numerous ancient temples known as marae. Once sacred, sacrificial shrines, these marae are now restored and preserved for all to pay homage. In a nearby lake, 300-year-old stone fishing traps – which are still in use today – are so sacred that only descendants of the Tahitian royal family can remove them.
