The historic and cultural heart of Huahine is on the southeast shore of Lake Fauna Nui. Here you can stroll through an open museum of ancient marae or walk a mile-long trail on the hillside that's strewn with archeological sites. The town's other significant attraction is several old fish traps located in the eastern corner of the lake. Fish swim into these triangular structures at high tide and are trapped when the tide runs out. There's also a pleasant little church,
a school and playgrounds; at 3 pm you may get caught behind the colorful school bus as it drops kids off at their homes along the main road.
