The miniscule Pitcairn Islands are made up of Oeno, Henderson, Ducie and Pitcairn. Only Pitcairn is inhabited with around 50 hardy souls calling the remote outpost home. Whilst the island is low on numbers of people it has an abundant flora and fauna life being home to over 1,200 species.
The islands measure 47 square kilometers (18 sq. miles) in total and getting to them isn't easy. It requires a flight to the nearest island of Mangareva and then a boat journey that takes 36 hours.
Pitcairn will forever have its place in history as the island the mutineers from HMS Bounty arrived at in 1790 following the 'Mutiny on the Bounty'.
