This serene village is tucked into the foothills on the shores of Baie de Hienghène, at the mouth of the Hienghène River. The area has fascinating rock formations, and it is known as the birthplace and home of Jean-Marie Tjibaou, New Caledonia’s pro-independence leader who was assassinated in 1989. People speak of Tjibaou with great respect, and he is buried in Tiendanite, a tribu 20km up the Hienghène valley.
