Comfortable accommodation, well placed. Incredible wildlife only a walk away. We had a bit of a storm overnight, which was quite an experience. Recommend for Imperial shags, rockhopper and gentoo penguins, sealions and some incredible walking.

I cannot rate Bleaker Island highly enough. We had our honeymoon here. Mike and Phyl Rendall could not have been better hosts than they were, Elaine was helpful and, together with the chef (whose name I cannot remember), produced wonderful food - in fact it...More
