Sito Archeologico Di Maeva, Huahine

4.2
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.

    Place on Huahine Polynesian culture interested so slightly. The place is very beautiful. For the magic all depends on the guide so a big thank you to Joselito.
