Ducie Island

Pitcairn Islands - Classic Pitcairn Islands

Ducie is a reef-ringed atoll only 6 meters above sea level. Sighted by Captain Edwards, of HMS Pandora, on his mission to find the “Bounty” mutineers in 1791, he sighted Ducie Island; but not Pitcairn, which lay 479km to the west.

The land surrounding the lagoon is covered at the edges by delicate coral. There are few trees, no undergrowth, little soil, and no freshwater. The Island is a nesting place for several varieties of Pacific birds. Lizards are the only other known inhabitants.
