Huahine, French Polynesia

We had planned on sailing from Huahine to the Tuamotus, but the winds and seas sounded a bit sporty to deal with as my first sail of the season. Instead, we decided to do a little exploring of Huahine.

Our Anchorage in Fare

Our “Clown Bikes”

Getting diesel and gasoline from the gas station to the dinghy to the boat. That shopping cart was very handy!

Our neighbor in the anchorage. Rumor has it you can rent it on Airbnb.

Fare is on the large island or Huahine Nui. We moved down to Avea Bay and circumnavigated Huahine Iti, the smaller island of Huahine, on our bikes.

The islands are quite hilly and mountainous, which makes them an interesting ride. 

Here is a beautiful bay between Huahine Iti looking at Huahine Nui.

We had a beautiful day for a gorgeous, scenic tour.

Including a little local art!

This is Avea Bay....looking from shore out to our anchorage from a hotel.

Simply stunning. I’m sure we will have more Huahine pics in the future.

  1. Nice job in pic #5, you captured a good shot of one of Huahine's most famous landmarks: Hiro's phallus. No I'm not making it up.
