  • The Pitcairn Islands

    The Pitcairn Islands, or officially Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. The four islands – Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie, and Oeno – are spread over several hundred miles of ocean and have a total land area of about 47 square kilometres (18 sq mi). Only Pitcairn, the second-largest island that measures about 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) from east to west, is inhabited. The islands are inhabited mostly by descendants of nine Bounty mutineers and the Tahitians (or Polynesians) who accompanied them, an event that has been retold in many books and films. This history is still apparent in the surnames of many of the islanders. With only about 50 permanent inhabitant...

The islands are the last British colony in the South Pacific and the most isolated British dependency, apart from Tristan da Cunha. The rugged main island was settled by the infamous mutineers of the HMS Bounty and their Polynesian companions, and most of Pitcairn's mere four dozen current inhabitants are their descendants.

    Pitcairn is the Paradise island, where no one wants to live. The Pitcairn Islands or officially Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, are a group of four volcanic islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that form the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. To many, it would seem the epitome of paradise - an idyllic isle thousands of miles from civilisation where the worst noise pollution comes from the azure sea gently lapping the shore. But no-one can be persuaded to live there, for love nor money.

The islands are the last British colony in the South Pacific and the most isolated British dependency, apart from Tristan da Cunha. The rugged main island was settled by the infamous mutineers of the HMS Bounty and their Polynesian companions, and most of Pitcairn's mere four dozen current inhabitants are their descendants. They are one of the least-populated entities given an ISO country code (PN). See Pitcairn Islands ================= The remains of the Bounty are in Bounty Bay. The ship was deliberately burned and sunk by the mutineers, and it's been well picked over by divers in the meantime, but there's still an allure to seeing (what little is left of) the vessel of the true tale that made "Captain Bligh" and "the Bounty" household names. The Bounty's anchor is on display in front of the Public Hall in the town square, where the library/post office building, and the Adventist church can also be found. The new museum in Adamstown contains artifacts from the Bounty (including Fletcher Christian's Bible), stamps, issues of National Geographic featuring the islands, and other items of local interest. One of the ship's four cannons is planned to be displayed here. The island's school lies up in the western "suburbs" of Adamstown. The grave of John Adams, the last surviving mutineer who first Christianised the community, the only one with a preserved grave. Fletcher Christian's cave, past the school and further up, is where the lead mutineer is said to have watched for approaching ships and/or hid from his ruthless fellow settlers when necessary. A Galapagos tortoise named Mrs. Turpin was left on the island in the early 20th century, and now lives in Tedside on the northwest shore of the island. Taro Ground which is in the southern part of Pitcairn is the largest flat area on the island and site of the island's traditional link to the outside world: its ham radio station. Flatland is a smaller plateau at the upper extent of Adamstown, with a tennis court, volleyball, and picnic facilities. Garnet's Ridge, at 300 m one of the highest parts of a tall island, offers great views to both the west and east. Highest Point is the... highest point on the island, at 337 m. Down Rope, a cliff on the southeast edge of the island, has ancient Polynesian petroglyphs in its face and an isolated sandy beach at its base. Gudgeon is a sea-level cave on the southwest side of the island, which hides a sandy beach in a large, wide space carved by the waves. Do Pitcairn Islands ====================== If the ocean is calm enough, go swimming in St. Paul's Pool, a picturesque tidal pool nestled among the seaside rocks in eastern part of Pitcairn. (Swimming in the ocean itself generally isn't safe due to the rocky shoreline.) Sail yourself or perhaps travel with the locals to another of the islands. Oeno has sandy beaches suitable for swimming, Henderson offers rare opportunities for birdwatching and exploration of ancient caves (dwellings?), and both are good for snorkeling or scuba diving among coral reefs and a few shipwrecks. Ducie is over 300 miles away, out of range of the islanders' boats, and therefore rarely visited, but is also good for seeing rare birds. Every year on January 23, "Bounty Day" is celebrated with a huge community dinner and the burning of a model of the Bounty.

Faced with a rapidly ageing population and with no children having been born there for more than four years, the inhabitants are desperately trying to attract new residents. But the task is proving far harder than they hoped, in large part due to its dark past of child sex abuse that continues to haunt the community to this day.

Unsere Reise um die Welt vom 22.12.2013 bis 12.04.2014  Die Reiseroute zu unserer Reise: ART074 | 111 Tage | 22.12.2013 - 12.04.2014 | Artania Weltreisen 2013/2014 22.12.2013 - 12.04.2014 ab Genua/bis Marseille  111 Tage 56 Häfen 34 Länder 5 Kontinente Unsere Reise um die Welt. 08.03. 2014 Adamstown - Bounty Bay - Pitcairn-Großbritannien. 75. Video. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitcairn Tendern. Unser Schiff liegt auf Reede. Das war vorgesehen. Aber der Kapitän hat das Tendern nicht erlaubt. Aus gutem Grund! Die Brandung ist heute 2-3 m hoch und das kann niemand von unseren Passagieren ohne Weiteres schaffen! Es ist einfach zu gefährlich. Pitcairn ist eine der einsamsten Inseln im Südpazifik. Es ist die einzige bewohnte Insel der Pitcairn Group. Pitcairn ist 4,5 km2 groß. Die höchste Erhebung ist 347 m. 5310 km ist die Entfernung bis Neuseeland!!!! Heute wohnen auf der Insel Pitcairn im Ort Adamstown 50 Bewohner. Sie entstammen alle den Familien Christian, Warren, Young und Brown. 1790 gingen der Bounty Meuterer Fletcher Christian und seine Gefolgsleute hier an Land. Weltweit soll es 7500 „Bounty-Nachkommen" geben. Die Hauptbeschäftigung der Bewohner ist Landwirtschaft, Obst- und Gemüseanbau und Fischfang. Ihre Boote bauen sie selber. 3 - 4 mal im Jahr kommt ein Versorgungsschiff von Neuseeland. Es bringt Lebensmittel und Post. Pitcairn ist von Klippen und schäumenden Wogen mit gefährlichen Unterströmungen umgeben. Ein schützendes Riff fehlt und so klatschen die Brecher bis an die Küste. Es gibt zwei offene Liegeplätze: Bounty Bay und Western Harbour. Aber es gibt ein Problem. Man muss direkt die Brandung durchfahren und das geht nur bei guten Wetter- und Windbedingungen. Adamstown liegt genau auf der Plattform einer Anhöhe von 120 m über der Anlegestelle von Bounty Bay. Da wir nicht Tendern konnten, kamen die Pitcairner zu uns an Bord mit Ihren Souvenir Ständen. Unsere Passagiere kauften reichlich von den mitgebrachten Schnitzereien und anderen Dinge, wie Honig, T-Shirts und Briefmarken der Insel. Wir schauten alle über die Reling, als die Pitcairner unser Schiff wieder verließen. Der Wellengang war noch höher geworden, sodass es selbst für die erfahren Pitcairner nicht einfach war, ihr Schiff zu besteigen! Aber sie sind wieder gut an ihr Land gekommen! Unsere Reise geht weiter!
