Bounty Bay is an embayment of the Pacific Ocean into Pitcairn Island.
Bounty Bay is named after the Bounty, a British naval vessel whose 18th-century mutiny was immortalized in the novel Mutiny on the Bounty, and the numerous subsequent motion pictures made of it. Current Pitcairn Islanders are largely lineal descendants of the mutineers, as exhibited by some of their surnames.
The islanders sell locally made handicraft items, guide books and the beautiful Pitcairn stamps.
Most of the islanders are members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, so there is no making or consumption of liquor.
The official currency is the New Zealand dollar. U.S. dollars are accepted.
Language English (official), Pitkern
