Marquesas/Hiva Oa: Hiva Oa Island from the Air

On to the next island in the Marquesas – Hiva Oa. Spectacular mountain scenery as the island is a combination of two volcanic calderas with steep cliffs rising straight from the ocean floor and many ridge criss crossing the roughly round island. The airport itself is located on top of the plateau so landing here you are almost going straight into the mountain.
