Ua Pou
Description 

Did You Know?

Striking basalt peaks and lush deep valleys of acacia and mango trees make Ua Pou one of the most unique and enticing islands in the Marquesas.
Ua Pou is located about 50km south of Nuku Hiva and is renowned for her four high basalt pillars that reach above the surrounding mountains. The highest of these pillars, Mount Oave is 1,230m above sea level and is indeed the highest elevation in the Marquesas.

The quaint village of Hakahau houses a unique church that combines ancient Polynesian traditions with modern Christianity in a beautiful blend of cultures.

A short walk up behind the small port and you will enjoy stunning views of the bay below and the surrounding mountain peaks.

Ua Pou residents welcome visitors with a local artist market where they showcase and sell their wood carvings, paintings, stone and bone carvings as well as a vast choice of locally made jewellery.
