Map of Nuku Hiva, Marquesas
We took a scenic drive through Taipivai Valley and visited the Te Aitua temple. We stopped at the Hooum black beach, also. The drive was very scenic and took about three hours with stops.

Lovely and very different. Black sand beaches, not as lush and green but still lovely. We bought a tiki with intricate carving. We were greeted by a huge statue of a Nuka Hiva Warrior and a tiki. Very few English speakers.

Also a school bus but not quite so primitive as Hiva Oa. A beautiful walk around the bay, with the complimentary shuttle bus to pick you up when you've had enough. The museum was interesting, especially the woman who owns it, and the crafts there are of surprisingly high quality. The modern cathedral is a fascinating contrast to Western styles.

A beautiful island, the site for the 2001 CBS- Survivor episode, much history all around the island.
