History

Geography

The town is located on the central-north side of the island of Pitcairn, in front of the Pacific Ocean and close to the Bounty Bay, the only seaport of the island.

Overview

Adamstown has a population of 48, which constitutes the entire population of the Pitcairn Islands. The hamlet currently holds the record for the smallest capital in the world, but it still has access to television, satellite internet, and a new expensive telephone. The main point of contact is still the ham radio. The city is where most residents eat and sleep, while they mainly pick fruit and hunt for food at other areas of the island [2].
