Maeva Marae Archaeological Site, Maeva, Huahine

Maeva , Huahine
French Polynesia
Concierge.com's insider take:

A jungle walk not far from the airport takes you to this magnificent, once-sacred hilltop ruin. Before Europeans arrived in the Society Islands, the village of Maeva was Huahine's seat of royal power—a hub of culture and religion, and home to the island's most prominent families. More than 200 stone maraes (temples built to honor Polynesian gods) have since been excavated here, and the site, which overlooks Lake Fauna Nui Pass, has been beautifully restored.
