Mellow cafés, family-owned bakeries, and a batch of quaint boutiques elbow up against one another along this free-spirited residential stretch. Its name translates as "The Great Adventure."

Nukuhiva

Organic-cotton tees, jeans, and numerous takes on the hoodie provide enough incentive to visit Nukuhiva, but perhaps most inspiring is that much of the proceeds from the sales of said items go to charity.
