Brooding Hen & Sphinx

Top choice landmark in Hienghène

Hienghène’s renowned Poule Couveuse (Brooding Hen) rock formation sits on one side of the entrance to Baie de Hienghène, facing the Sphinx on the other. You can view these two rock formations from the signposted lookout, 2km south of the village. There’s a better profile of the Sphinx about 1.5km north of the village.
