  • You can't exempt from visiting this imported archaeological site overlooking the sea. It's almost always the desert and silence is the master. The ride around the island, looking for beaches, a stage it is necessary to contemplate what's left of these altars (Marae). In Huahine was the most important ceremonial center of Polynesia and the signs are very exhaustive. Not to be missed.
