THE MOST INACCESSIBLE PLACE ON EARTH

The most inaccessible place on earth is known as Point Nemo. It is the furthest point from land on Earth. Officially known as the oceanic point of inaccessibility, it's located in the centre of the triangle made by Ducie Wand, Motu Nui (part of the Easter Island chain) and Maher Island near Antarctica.

It is so far from land that the closest humans to Point Nemo are usually astronauts - the International Space Station orbits the Earth from a distance of about 258 miles (415 kilometres), while the closest inhabited spot to Point Nemo is more than 1,670 miles (1,225 kilometres) away.
