Main port photo for Huahine, French Polynesia

One of Polynesia's best-kept secrets - Huahine, the "Wild Island" in the Society Islands - lies just over a hundred miles from Tahiti. The two islands of Huahine, Huahine Nui and Huahine Iti (Big Island and Little Island), are surrounded by a deep lagoon encircled by a coral necklace. Connected by a bridge, both islands boast white-sand beaches, vanilla plantations, friendly and easy-going islanders, and some of Polynesia's most significant cultural sites.

Note: Huahine is a tender port. Transportation from the ship to shore will be via the ship's tender service.
