Daniels Bay, Nuku Hiva

Deb/warm and humid
Here are some pictures from a recent visit to Daniels Bay. A season of Survivor was filmed here, unfortunately they did not treat Daniel too well. It is a lovely bay. Please enjoy.

One of the boats anchored in Daniel's Bay had a Drone. We are in the middle back row. How cool is this?

Another view of the bay

There we are in the front

Lovely rainbow. This is the first time I have seen both ends of one!

Such lush vegetation.

Pretty close to sunset.

The ocean side of the beach where we went ashore. There is a small creek in the background that we traveled up. This begins our 3 hour hike up to one of the supposed 3rd tallest waterfalls in the world.

The other side of the beach and the landing spot for going ashore.


One form of transportation in this bay. They had rusty old vehicles that we were surprised actually run, but they only used them to haul things from boats to the homes of the 10 local residents. There is no road into the bay from outside.

We were told the foundation of this home originally was the home of the King who had 30,000 people in his Kingdome. Wow. There are 10 people there now.....

A church for local worship. What a setting.....

Apparently it actually works, and it works better when it is raining. Go figure.

Under the umbrella of a star fruit tree. Amazing.

One of many figures we saw on the way.

Those stacked rocks were the foundation for a very large village.

Not sure what kind of tree this was, but when you knocked on it it sounded like a drum. Quite loud.

Fording that creek. One of about 4 times we crossed it in route to the falls.

See the falls in the distance? We are about ½ way there.


Into the seams of the surrounding hills.

Where did the trail go? It was barely a goat path.

We made it to the base of the falls.

Now the next journey into the falls.


It was like a wind tunnel in there. Flying water, and wind whipped you right in the face.

We were actually sitting on a rock. Not too deep right there.

Our hostess for lunch on the hike back.

She prepared us this very welcomed feast after our long day.

High tide now back near the beach.

Water trail this time.

The area where the residents lived had impressively manicured gardens with lots of beautiful and exotic to us flowers.

Another figure. Wonder if it was carved without a body or lost it somewhere?

Love the Hibiscus.

Wild bananas. There were 3 different kinds growing along the trail.

Well the bay would have been paradise if it were not for the bugs. That is not sand in the cockpit. At least these little beasties did not bite, but they did keep us holed up below until after 10AM almost every day.

Well that was Daniels Bay. Lovely isn't it?
