Fare Huahine

Located on the western edge of the island, the village of Fare is the largest settlement on Huahine and is a bustling hub of activity. With a number of boutique gift shops selling traditional arts and crafts and fresh food stores to peruse, it’s the perfect place to stock up on souvenirs and provisions.

It’s also an opportunity to visit Huahine Pearl and Pottery, where black pearls from the giant Black Lip Oysters, have been handcrafted into exquisite jewellery. There’s plenty of culinary choice for those looking to dine out, from traditional Tahitian, to fine French and international cuisine there’s something to tempt everyone’s taste buds.

Keep an eye out for “Les Roulettes”, the rolling food trucks, which hastily open for business every evening. These mobile kitchens serve up delicious French and Polynesian dishes and it’s where you’ll find the local Fare villagers dinning out.

For a cultural fix, head to the northeast of the island where one of the largest and best preserved archaeological sites in Polynesia, the Marae of Maeva still remains. The sleepy village of Maeva was once the seat of royal power on the island and today, scattered along the waterfront and in the mountains are the ruins of Maraes, or temples, which belonged to its chiefs and priests. With a slice of local history and a few photograph memories taken, head back down to the village and back onboard for a Hinano beer or two as you contemplate tomorrows adventure in paradise.

 

Moorings:

  • You can anchor off the west end of Fare village, just inside the pass through the reed. Here you’ll find good protection from prevailing easterly winds

Things to do:

  • Going ashore to see the island by rented car takes you on quiet country roads weaving through the valleys and hills. Vanilla plantations spread out from the roadside and climb the hills.
  • Horseback riding is another option and a great way to see the interior.
  • Spending some time at the Huahine Shack sipping a cool drink is a must for cruisers.

Facilities

  • Water is available from the commercial dock and you can stock up on provisions from the village
