"Locals like to say that when the gods created Huahine, they made it to represent all of the island of Polynesia," says Paul Atallah, the owner of Island Eco Tours. We make plans to meet up after I've spent a few days at Te Tiare Beach Resort (866/209-3901). Te Tiare's 19 garden bungalows are nestled amid swaying palms.
