Getting around in the Marquesas Islands
You should organize your transfer from the airport with your travel agent or directly with your accommodation. For traveling around while you’re there, you can generally rent a four-wheel drive car.

A boat trip is the best way to see some of the majestic bays and the impressive, rocky coastine.
