The remote island of Henderson—a tiny dot in the South Pacific Ocean—lies approximately halfway between New Zealand and Chile. It is one of four islands that make up the Pitcairn Group. It was here, in 1789, the mutineers of the HMS Bounty sought safe heaven, eventually settling on the island of Pitcairn, located some 190 km away from Henderson. Pitcairn is the only inhabited island in the group. No one lives on Henderson Island, and aside from an occasional visit from scientists and Pitcairn’s dwindling population, there are hardly any tourists here. The nearest major landmass is more than 5,000 kilometers away.
