Nuku Hiva is the largest of the six inhabited islands that form the Marquesas archipelago.
These islands are some of the most remote islands in the world, and are very different from the Society Islands’ calm lagoons with their surrounding reefs. In Nuku Hiva sheer cliffs drop off in to the rough and wild vast ocean.
Nuku Hiva is situated 1400km from the island of Tahiti. Flights to the island take three and a half hours from Tahiti, or alternatively you can arrive by boat on the passenger/cargo vessel, the Aranui 3.
Nuku Hiva was formed by two volcanoes and is an abundance of majestic rocky shores, calm pristine bays, spectacular waterfalls, lush valleys and breathtaking basalt peaks.
