Hiva Oa is the largest island of the southern Marquesas group, 1400 km NE of Tahiti. Its population is around 2200. Hiva Oa means “long ridgepole,” likely so named because of its long central ridge. The island features deep valleys and lush plateaus covered in dense forest, and is particularly popular with people who sail yachts. No fringing coral reefs protect Hiva Oa from the pounding of the ocean, and only a few sheltered anchorages and sandy beaches are scattered around the coast. The volcanic island's mountainous slopes rise abruptly from the sea, reaching a dominant 1,240m at Mount Temetiu, which overlooks the village Atuona to the east.

Here are the graves of French artist Paul Gauguin and renowned Belgian singer Jaques Brel, both of whom are buried in the Calvary Cemetery, just a short walk up the hillside from Atuona Bay anchorage. The Paul Gauguin Cultural Center at Atuona has a reconstruction of his Maison du Jouir. The museum displays copies of the artist's works, as well as mementos and items related to his stay on the island. The island is home to many huge and interesting pre-European archaeological sites such as the Taaoa and Iipona sites, as well as the petroglyphs near the picturesque village Hanatekuua, that are all very well worth investigating.

The island has the largest stone tiki sculptures in French Polynesia, especially near the village of Puama'u on the northeastern coast. (A tiki is a large or small wooden or stone carving in humanoid form.) This majestic and historic island is known for its wild, untamed landscape and endless vistas. Despite not having either a coastal plain or a coral reef, it's a great place to 'get lost in a time gone by'.
