Tiki Village Review
This replica of a traditional Polynesian village, a few miles south of Hauru Point, has been drawing visitors for 14 years. By day there are fishing and pearl-collecting demonstrations, and artisans are at work weaving, carving stone, painting, and tattooing. At night 60 performers put on a spectacular show complete with grass skirts and fire dancing. The audience gets a lesson in pareo (sarong) tying and hip swinging. If you don't want to be dragged up on stage, don't sit in the front. If you buy a ticket to the nightly show, you receive a free day pass to the village. The village is also well known for its Polynesian wedding ceremonies, which must be booked well in advance.
