Aukena (formerly Gambier Islands) is the smallest of the four large Gambier Islands in French Polynesia, in the South Pacific. The Gambier Islands are the remnants of a volcanic caldera now surrounded by a fringing reef. Aukena is only 3km long and less than 800m wide, with highest points (to 178m and 128m) at each end of the island. There are some houses around the shoreline, sandy beach on the north side, and coral reefs to the south. The total population of the entire island group is just 1640.

Aukena lies to the far east of French Polynesia (1660 km from Tahiti), and the next island of note to the east is Pitcairn Island (680 km distant). Francis Sanford (1912-1996), great politician of Polynesia, said that the beach on the north side of Aukena was one of the most beautiful in the world. The beach is often deserted, and in the distance you can see Mount Duff overlooking the larger island of Mangareva.

On Aukena you’ll also find remnants of French missionaries on the island: a hexagonal lookout tower at cape Mata Kuiti (the far SW tip of the island), a former seminary, the 1839 Église Saint-Raphaël, and a lime kiln used to make building materials. It’s possible to walk around the island on a track. Out to sea are buoys of pearl farms, from which black pearls provide Gambier with its main income.
