Easy to get to for a half-day tour. Short easy walk takes you to good view points. Some penguins but not the best place for them. Peaceful.

A beautiful spot. About 10 minutes drive from Stanley. Great scenery and loads of wildlife including Penguins. There is a walkway which is suitable for all ages and most abilities. Make sure you take your camera!
