When You Stay at Big Flower...
The Polaris will get you pretty much anywhere on the island. But, Pitcairn has many historical and natural attractions which are not so easily accessible.
Don’t worry, we’ll take you on guided walking or tramping tours instead if that’s your preference (we recommend you get out and about walking).
You can visit Christian’s Cave where Fletcher Christian is said to have pondered the enormity of his decision to mutiny. We’ll take you Down Rope, where you will see first-hand the ancient petroglyphs carved into the rock face by Pitcairn’s early Polynesian inhabitants. We’ll walk with you from Big Flower to Tedside and out to Water Valley where you can see the rainfall water pools and take photos of Western harbour, the original anchorage of the HMAV Bounty. We’ll swim with you in the crystal waters of St. Paul’s pool or take you down Tautama, where there are still signs of pre European stone tool making. We’ll show you how to harvest bananas, open and ana (grate) coconuts or fish off the rocks and we can also arrange fishing or diving trips for you if the weather is right.
Prepare to go home exhausted, exhilarated and wanting more!
