    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    somthing that would really annoy me about some people when we were in nuku hiva (not the locals of course) but the tourists, was they were complaining "i dont like this island there is nothing here , no shops "!!!
    i used to think - just sit down on a top of a mountain or a beach and just think about where you are in the world !!.........in the middle of nowhere........beautiful rugged landscape..............no shops.........loverly !!
    dont come here if you want to shop and buy ' i love nuku hiva' t-shirts as its definatly NOT the place to go ! of course you may find a tiny stall or a market with a few local handicrafts
    but it IS beautiful and natural, the locals are very friendly !they dont get a lot of visitors !

    if you have arrived here by cruise ship or you have other scheduled appointments.......REMEMBER........apart from' island time' genrally being a slower pace of living than the rest of the world...... this islands time difference is 1/2 an hour behind the rest of french polynesia !! so dont ask locals the time if you need to be somwhere esle on time !!you might miss the boat.....as a few people i know did !!!
