Huahine is an island located among the Society Islands, in French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. Huahine is actually made up of two separated islands, Huahine Nui (Big Huahine) to the north and Huahine Iti (Little Huahine) to the south, only separated by a few hundred yards of water and joined by a sandspit at low tide, and is surrounded by a coral reef along which emerge several islets. A small bridge was built to connect Huahine Nui and Huahine Iti.
