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!

Very open so pick your day or wrap up. They have decent gravel pathways and the views can be excellent. The beach is all white sand but it out of bounds due to the potential presence of mines. There are viewing platforms with information boards...More
