Landmark Tourist Spot
Discover the rich cultural history of Polynesian islanders at Sito Archeologico Di Maeva, featuring a dense concentration of ruins from over a millennium ago. Set just back from the island's coast, the historical site includes some 200 stone structures, including the remains of a marae (open-air sacred temple), dwellings, horticultural developments, and religious monuments. Have a picnic by the sea, or sheltered under the palms that line the grassy areas. Then follow the path to an ancient fishing village that sits just beyond the ruins, learning about the ancient technique of fish trapping from the artifacts on display here.

  • Well before the arrival of the evangelists, Polynesia has lived 1000 years "spirituality" on these places that were also the place where were decisions about the community... the Marae were and remain respected places on which we must not climb. Huahine are particularly extensive Lake. The central fare is a marvel of wooden architecture where you can discover all the know-how Polynesian. Don't forget to you take off your shoes before you enter

  • Interesting but nothing more. Time to do 2-3 photos. Signs are illegible. The site seems to be maintained just what it takes but frankly feel is sad. C is a pity. Taputapuatea is more interresting (Raiatea). On the other hand, prixomite, fish traps are good but the same 15 minutes c ' is done.
