Huahine Travel Guide

Touring Tips

Early nights. There are no streetlights to illuminate the palm tree-lined coastal road that winds around Huahine Nui and Iti, making driving a little bit tricky. If you do drive after dark use high beam as there are usually cyclists and people walking along the road.

Slow down. The island isn't big but there are many marae to discover at Maeva. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around these fascinating sites, right by the Lake Fauna Nui.

Simple life. You won't find sophisticated restaurants or any nightlife on the island. It's a step back in time; chill out and enjoy it.

Wise planning. Car rental is pricey, so plan what you want to do so you won't waste money on a car you don't use. If you're staying three days, chill out and get your bearings on arrival, take a lagoon or mountain excursion another day, and hire a car on Day 3.
