Hello again, and welcome back to Just Answer!

Nuku Hiva, a volcanic island of the northwestern Marquesas Islands, in French Polynesia, is located in the central South Pacific Ocean. Nuku Hiva is the Marquesas' main and largest island. It is also widely regarded as the most beautiful of the Marquesas. It is famous for Herman Melville having written his book 'Typee' based on his experiences in the Taipivai valley, located in the eastern part of Nuku Hiva.
