Pitcairn is accessible only by boat through Bounty Bay. There is no airstrip and no harbor. Only longboats visit (from visiting tourist ships). It is the only inhabited island of a group of four in the southern Pacific; part of an archipelago near French Polynesia. The island has a labor force of about 15 people. Most of the islanders are descendants of the "Bounty" mutineers. In September of 2003, the first baby was born on the island in 17 years.
