Welcome to Oeno Island - a beautiful island untouched by development, and surrounded by white sandy beaches. the Island is home to a number of birds such as the Murphy's Petrel, Sooty Tern, Brown Noddy, and other species. With the successful eradication of rats in 1997 these birds have a higher chance of survival and will, hopefully, flourish.
The Pitcairn Islands are home to the worlds largest, no-take Marine reserve, covering 840,000 square kilometres. Established in 2015, The Pitcairn Islands Marine Reserve provides protection to some of the most pristine waters and coral reefs on earth.
Walk the Eco Trail to Sailors Hide and Christian’s Cave
The Eco trail provides an accessible, easy wander through Pitcairn's flora featuring native and endemic species. This gentle wander through huge overhanging rock formations, where it is said the mutineers made a fiery brew from the root of the 'ti' plant, also offers a walk back in time, to sites like 'Sailors Hide', before the climb to Christian's Cave.

Since early 2011 the Pew Environment Group’s Global Ocean Legacy project worked with the Pitcairn islanders on the idea of establishing a large scale marine reserve within their waters. In March 2012 the National Geographic Society and Global Ocean Legacy conducted an expedition to Pitcairn to assess the health of the marine environment around all four islands, and also – for the first time ever – used dropcams, to investigate the deep water areas. The surveys revealed an incredibly healthy marine ecosystems, as well as plants and animals new to science.
The Pitcairn Islands have exceptionally stunning dark skies, free from all light pollution.
