Huahine is also called "The Island of Woman" because it has always been ruled by queens. The island has about 6,000 inhabitants over an area of 74 km2. It is composed of two mountain ranges separated by two bays.
The coral reef has emerged on the northern and eastern coasts, making it an elevated atoll. They grow vanilla, as well as melons and watermelons on the motus. It exploits copra and we practice fishing. It is on Huahine Nui that is Fare, principal city of the island and chief town of the municipality of Huahine. An aerodrome serves the island.
