  • Jetski

    On Huahine, we rented a jetski for a whole day. It was a great experience. A guide takes you around the island. You visit the different bays, have a picnic on a motu and do some snorkelling. We recommend it to everyone. I don't know whether this guide still operates but back in 1994 he could be reached on Huahine - Titiraina Jet Tour - Yves Gaden.

    The best way to see the island is by car. There is a road (32 km - 20 miles) around the island that passes through the little villages. There is another road, called la route transversale, that crosses part of the island and is best explored by Jeep.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Regardless of what the rental agent tells you, make certain you have insurance....The roads can tend to come to an abrupt halt with no way to turn around (well it does take some time).

    And if the map says there is a road, ASK...I landed in someone's back yard with only a shell "trail" to drive on. His only response when I pointed to the map was..."never no road."

    Small vanilla plantations dot the island. Stop at one to watch the process. From the "vine" to the drying process. The aroma of the drying beans can be smelled from quite a distance.

    Stop, take in the aroma, and take home some fresh vanilla beans.
