Pitcairn Island

Few ships are able to slip through the reef at Pitcairn Island, which is what made this remote atoll so appealing to Fletcher Christian and his band of mutineers in 1790. After setting Captain Bligh adrift in the Bounty's longboat, they returned to Tahiti to collect their wives, and made a run for Pitcairn Island, keeping all visitors at bay until being unofficially pardoned in 1814 by the British Empire. Today about 50 people live on Pitcairn. The islanders live in and around Adamstown, the original home of the mutineers, and support themselves by producing postage stamps and making handicrafts, which they sell primarily to visitors on passing ships.
