We rented a car with our great friends, Ed & Linda of SV One Fine Day and took a drive around the island. Kevin at Nuka Hiva Yacht Services provided us with a great map and pointed out the best places to see. We went to some ancient marae grounds and had a wonderful lobster lunch on the bay at Hatihue. We even took a drive to an area known as the “Grand Canyon of Hiva Oa”. The trees here reminded us much more of northwestern USA than they did of a tropical island.
