Fodor's Review

If you've had your fill of pearl farms, this—the only one in Huahine—may change your mind. Both the farm and a separate pottery studio (owned by ex-Californian Peter Owen and his Tahitian-born wife Ghislaine) are located on an island in the middle of the lagoon and a boat will whisk you to one, then the other, from the town of Faaie. You'll learn about the long processes involved before a cultivated pearl is hatched, watch technicians at work, and browse the small boutique where you can check out the couple's pottery: Peter makes the vases and urns and his wife and son paint them with Polynesian designs.
