Why go to Huahine?
Wild jungle beauty and plenty of history enhance this isolated island
Very few facilities for those seeking fancy restaurants and bars
Huahine is a quieter alternative to its touristy neighbors and a step back in time
Huahine Cruise Port Facilities?
Aside from a restroom and one small shack containing a snack bar and some handicrafts, there's nothing at the tender dock. If you are exploring independently of a shore excursion, shopping, dining and activities are centered in the village of Fare on the north-west coast of Huahine Nui.
Good to Know?
Rain showers are common in Huahine, and while they don't usually last long, they're often intense enough to require an umbrella. If wet weather occurs during your visit, look for the pretty rainbows that form over Maroe Bay.
Currency & Best Way to Get Money?
The local currency is the French Pacific franc, shown as CFP in shops (and XPF on currency websites). Though some shops accept U.S. dollars, including the big supermarket in Fare, you may want to keep a few francs on hand for the smaller boutiques. There's an ATM at the Banque de Tahiti.
Tahitian and French are mostly spoken, though tourist officials and many folks in town can communicate in English.
