The only sizable town on Chatham Islands, Waitangi, hosts a couple of shops, a hotel, motel, and a post office. Most roads are unsealed and there is no public transport at all, but car and 4-wheel drive hire is available. Walking seems to be a popular form of transport! Air Chathams offer sightseeing and trips to Pitt Island, and it is possible to hitch lifts on fishing vessels although with notoriously savage seas. Accommodation on the island includes the hotel in Waitangi, a motel with self-contained units, a guesthouse, a lodge and a backpackers hostel.
