Travel to Pitcairn Islands

The Pitcairn Islands are a group of 4 volcanic islands that are located in the South Pacific. Only Pitcairn, the largest island, is inhabited. The permanent population is believed to be a mix of Polynesians or Tahitians and the 9 mutineers of the HMAV Bounty, as evidenced by the surnames of those who live here.

About 50 people, from 4 main families, make Pitcairn their home, making it the smallest national jurisdiction in the world.

Adventure tourism is the primary reason to visit Pitcairn. The islands stay with local families during their visit and the local government operates a vessel which makes the island accessible for 4-day or 11-day holidays. Options include private apartments or fully-furnished homes, depending on how the holiday is booked.

Because the families on the island can trace their lineage to the Bounty, much of the experience found in Pitcairn is linked to it. You’ll find wood carvings, hand-painted leaves, woven baskets, and plenty of other souvenir opportunities available to remember the experience. Honey production is a growing industry on the island and should be enjoyed to its fullest extent during your stay.

You’ll also find the world’s largest no-take Marine Reserve along Pitcairn, providing more than 840,000 square kilometers that provide marine life with a needed sanctuary. Life is abundant in these waters and it may be possible to book a charter or yacht to take you to good snorkeling or diving sites, depending on the weather.

Pitcairn is one of the most unique holiday destinations the world has to offer. You can find a unique adventure waiting for you here.

Best of Bahrain

It can get extremely hot in Bahrain in the summer months, with temperatures pushing up to 40C and sometimes way past. The average temperature high for the year, however, is around 30C, with the lowest temperatures in January and February, when it’s around 20C.

Although a small country with a population of just over 1.2 million, half of whom are non-nationals, Bahrain is a major tourism destination. It’s increasingly attracting people from outside the region. Some two million people visit the country each year, drawn by the brilliant weather, wonderful culture and safe environment.

The wealthy Middle Eastern nation of Bahrain has been investing heavily in tourism as it moves beyond an oil-based economy and develops into other sectors. Officially the Kingdom of Bahrain, it’s an archipelago comprising of the main island of Bahrain, with the gleaming capital, Manama, in the northeast, and a grouping of smaller islands. The country lies just off the western shores of the Persian Gulf and is linked to its western neighbour of Saudi Arabia by a number of bridges stretching for 25km and collectively called the King Fahd Causeway. Bahrain holidays are an indulgent escape into a Persian paradise.

On the main Bahrain Island there’s no shortage of excellent accommodation, particularly in the capital, Manama, where you’ll find some of the best hotels in the region, including many international brands. The country’s second-largest city is Riffa, further south, and it has lots of historical attractions as well as good shopping. That’s followed by Muharraq as the third-biggest city, on the island of Muharraq in the northeast. Other major islands in the archipelago where you can stay on your Bahrain holidays are Hawar, just off the west coast of Qatar; Umm an Nasan in the northwest of the archipelago; and Sitrah, in the northeast.

Begin your Bahrain holidays by finding out all about this fascinating Arab country – visit Bahrain National Museum in the capital, Manama, where you can view a large collection of artefacts from antiquity as well as items from more recent history. Beside the museum is the National Theatre of Bahrain; its main auditorium has a grand total of 1,001 seats. Book tickets to a performance and take up some.

Qal’at al-Bahrain, or Bahrain Fort, is an important archaeological area that has been excavated since the 1950s and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discoveries at the location, in Karbabad in the north of the main island, reveal that people have lived there since around 2300 BC.

The enormous Al Fateh Grand Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the entire world and is in the capital – go have a look and see it for yourself. The expansive building can hold around 7,000 people at any one time and has two towering minarets to broadcast the call to prayer. It was only built in 1987 and is one of the major tourism attractions in the country. Tours are available every day except Friday, the Islamic day of prayer.

If you’re on holiday with little ones, they’ll love Adhari Park, an amusement park in Tubli in the east of the main island. There are all sorts of rides, both indoor and out, as well as lots of cafés and restaurants.

Bahrain has a vibrant nightlife, some of the best in the region, and you’ll have a superb time in the many great restaurants, bars and clubs.

Adamstown, capital of Pitcairn Islands

The entire population of Pitcairn lives in Adamstown, which means about 60 people live there in total. All the other islands in the group are completely uninhabited. That makes the community the second smallest capital in the world. There is only one road in Adamstown that is named and it is called the Hill of Difficulty. Adamstown was settled in 1790 when mutineers from the Bounty were left on the island after their efforts were stopped. There are four main...
