Huahine is named after the shape of its mountains, which look like a pregnant woman lying down. It has a really nice blend of historical ruins, unique culture, beautiful mountains/beaches and somehow just the right amount of infrastructure (e.g., there's a grocery store with everything you could ever need but it no place on the island feels big/crowded). One of it's unique features is it's blue eyed eels - they're supposed to embody the spirits of their ancestors, and are said to be quite harmless...but they're also quite large and a wee bit creepy.
