Motu Picnic

    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Meal

Boat out to a small islet, spend awhile doing whatever pleases you – or nothing – and enjoy a Polynesian beach picnic. There are few locales on earth more scenic than being on a tiny motu in the Society Islands, surrounded by glistening sand, translucent turquoise waters and swaying palm trees. You’ll sail from the pier and anchor just offshore. Wade in through the shallow water and spend a couple of hours luxuriating in the manner of your choice: sunning, swimming, or maybe just drifting in and out of daydreams. Feeling more adventurous? Take a walk over to the reef side of the motu, past fields where the local fruits and vegetables are grown, and have a snorkel using the gear provided. Looking to add to your tropical wardrobe repertoire? Enjoy a traditional pareo demonstration and learn how to tie the perfect Polynesian sarong. Of course, no trip to micro-paradise is complete without a beach picnic – and this too will be on your agenda this day. After a time, climb back aboard for the return to Huahine pier. That’s paradise, too – just on a slightly larger scale.

Need to Know:

This tour is recommended for guests in reasonably good physical condition who are able to swim. It will be necessary to negotiate a ladder to board the boat from the water. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Guests who wish to snorkel must be used to wearing the mask and snorkel provided, comfortable swimming in deep water and able to cope with occasional currents. Guests are cautioned not to touch or step on any coral for both safety and environmental reasons. Those participating in water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
