(4.3/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
Discover the rich cultural history of Polynesian islanders at Sito Archeologico Di Maeva, featuring a dense concentration of ruins from over a millennium ago.

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.

  • This is not the most beautiful marae of Polynesia and it deserves to be highlighted. Big enough and by sea

  • Interesting discovery of sacred sites in Polynesian culture. A Museum in a traditional fare is next to the marae.

  • The site is one of the many Marae on the island, however its scope is exceptional and restoration of the site with the traditional hut gives a different meaning to the place.
