Tahiti, French Polynesia

Mutiny on the Bounty

Fictional Setting: Few maritime stories capture the imagination as viscerally as the Mutiny on the Bounty. Acting Lieutenant Fletcher Christian set Captain William Bligh and 18 loyalists adrift in HMS Bounty’s open launch after Christian and the rest of the crew rebelled during a five-month stopover on the island of Tahiti.

True Location: In 1961 Marlon Brando would play Christian in the paradisiacal but very real location of French Polynesia – more than 100 islands scattered across 2,000 kilometres of the South Pacific. A portion of the Mutiny on the Bounty filming took part on Tahiti, the largest island in the group.

Nearby: After filming wrapped, Brando secured a 99-year lease on the small archipelago of Tetiaroa. Following his death in 2004, Brando’s family opened up his private paradise for others to explore. Less than 30 nautical miles or a 15-minute flight from Faa’a International Airport, The Brando resort is now home to 35 glass-fronted beach villas.
