Pitcairn Island

We often get jumbled up when it comes to choosing the right holiday destination. And we usually feel skeptical when we hear names that have never been heard before. Are you in search of a peaceful and private place to spend your holiday? Just leave all your confusions behind; for this is one of the world's most beautiful and most private places; a place you might never have heard of. But it’s worth a try.

In search of privacy

It is a big trouble to searching for the most private place on the planet is. The lose group of handful of tiny islands is what forms the Pitcairn Island. Pitcairn Island is considered as one of the world's most private holiday destinations in the world. An island with a population density of just fifty seems unlikely in today’s world. Does it really exist? It does. As you sail towards Pitcairn Island, you approach one of the world's most uninhabited islands that lie in the center New Zealand and the Americas. And what separates Pitcairn Island from them is the stretch of four thousand eight hundred kilometers of open ocean; a few coral reefs lie to the north; and the southern seas are empty to the ice caps of Antarctica.

Amused by the sketch? Here are a few fundamental facts about Pitcairn Island. The narrow-mindedness of its bureaucracy and the lack of its resources, combine together to, make Pitcairn Island one of the world's most difficult and expensive places to visit.

Larger Than Life

There is no airstrip in Pitcairn Island and it is out of range of land launched helicopters, so flying is not an option. The only way you can reach this private holiday destination is via commercial cruise ships or private ocean-traversing yachts.  The best option to get to this most private holiday destination is to fly to Papeete in Tahiti and then fly by Air Tahiti to Mangareva which occurs just once every week. From the small island of Mangareva, a ferry is all you need to sail down to Pitcairn Island.

Visitors staying on the island for any length of time require a license from the governor. This is because of the irregularity of transport which makes them effective residents of the island for the next several weeks or even months. This makes Pitcairn Island one of the world's most expensive holiday destinations in the world.

Get Around, See and Do

In spite of the isolation that has cast a deep shadow over Pitcairn Island, there are places you must not miss.  The remains of the Bounty, the Bounty's anchor, the Adventist church and the new museum in Adamstown, are among the few places that capture tourist attractions. You can explore the coral reefs, the underwater world as well as the shipwrecks in the waters of Pitcairn Island.

Discover Pitcairn Island fascinating culture and history, exciting tours and a range of activities with a touch of lush and fertile climate.

    I have been there about 5 years ago for a holiday/english crouse in August. I have stayed close to St. Juliens; the area of St. Juliens was very lively with plenty of clubs for young people and language students but outside the main area it was all very quiet, in fact there was an horse in a field just opposite the house I was living in. That made it a bit unsafe because it was dark and my flatmate got the handbag snatched (so just be careful at night). The beaches were ok to get some sun and swim a bit but they weren’t the best. I have found a very good beach with christal clear waters and partially rocky called Paradise beach, and also in one of the islands i think it was Gozo there were no facilities at the beaches, just pure nature the islands are indeed pretty quiet. The temperature was very high, which I loved it, never seen a cloud, the water of the sea was very warm too and I didn’t need a towel after swimming as the sun dried me in 10 mins.The main colour of the landscapes was yellow and I thought the arabic influence was obvious pretty much everywhere. There will certainly be excursions to do, the hotel will be able to advise on that, or even offer and book. I remember I wanted to do an excursion on jeeps which unfortunately was fully booked, so I choosed a trip to Valletta and to another town (can’t remember the name), I didn’t have time to do an excursion to a cave in the sea which would have been interesting.I hope this helps!
