Hiva Oa is the second-largest island in the Marquesas, and location of significant historical and cultural sites. Painter Paul Gauguin is buried in the island's main town of Atuona, while the village of Puamau is where you'll find the largest stone sculptures in the Marquesas. In fact, they're considered relatives of the famous tikis of Necker Island, north of Hawaii, and Easter Island.
