Port Description

Huahine, French Polynesia

Huahine, like most South Pacific islands, formed when a volcano collapsed upon itself, sunk into the ocean, and its crater filled with water. Huahine Nui (large Huahine) and Huahine Iti (small Huahine) are separated by Maroe and Bourayne Bays and are connected only by one single bridge near the village of Maroe. The island is an even more isolated retreat from the world--it makes Tahiti look like the London of the South Pacific.
