Pitcairn Island, a British outpost located near the Tropic of Capricorn in the Southern Pacific, nearly 3000 miles from the nearest continental landmass is the most remote permanent settlement in the world. The island is extremely hard to get to – at least 3 days by cargo ship from the nearest island with an airstrip. Pitcairn is too steep for an airstrip. More information at the Pitcairn Government website.
