The Iles Australes called also Tubai Islands are situated about 600-1100 km southwest of Tahiti. Five of these islands are inhabitated: Rapa (40 sqkm), Raivavae (16 sqkm), Riwatara (8 sqkm), Rurutu (30 sqkm) and Tubuai (40 sqkm) with the capital Mataura. Politically they belong to French Polynesia.
The islands were discovered by Captain Cook in 1769. The bounty crew was looking for shelter on Tubuai as well but then decided to sail to Pitcairn. The Austral islands are very isolated aside from most naval routes. This is the reason why they were able to keep their old traditions alive.
There are only a few housing possibilities for tourists though there are many phantasmagoric bays full of palms and tropical forests in the mountains inviting you. The inhabitants are living on fishing and selling kopra.
