Sightseeing:

Ua Pou has imposing jagged cliffs rising from the sea and is the most populated island with a population of some 2,000 people.

Ua Pou has one of the earth's most dramatic skylines. A wilderness of fantastic peaks, thrusting 4,000 feet into the ocean sky. Great Cathedral spires, strange obelisk-shaped columns that give the island its name - the pillars.

Located 22 miles south of Nuku Hiva and 53 miles west-northwest of Hiva Oa, Ua Pou is the third largest island in the Marquesas archipelago. Hakahau boasts the first Marquesan church, built in 1859, and in Haakuti and Hakahetau villages there are small Catholic churches built on top of paepae platforms.

Hakahau has a hospital, gendarmerie, bank, post office, food stores, boutiques, Air Tahiti office, port facilities, schools, Catholic and Protestant churches, pensions, restaurants and bars.
