French Polynesia General: 85 reviews and 75 photos
Favorite thing: Outrigger canoes are part of the Polynesian heritage, they are very common in French Polynesia.
This kind of boat is in fact a canoe featuring at least one lateral support floats, fastened to the side of the hull. They are known to be much more stable on the sea than normal canoes.
Outrigger canoe races is a popular activity in the south seas islands, especially during the Heiva.
