Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands
Nuku Hiva is the largest island in the Marquesas archipelago. Put on the map by author-adventurer Herman Melville, these islands are breathtakingly beauty. Its volcanic origins are responsible for the dramatic scenery and vast natural harbor that exist due to the partial collapse of a volcano's caldera.
The culture of the indigenous people awaits you in the Marquesas. Nap the afternoon away under a palm tree on one of its secluded beaches or take a Taipivai Valley scenic drive.

Cathedral of Notre Dame
