It is hard not to miss the shipwrecks around Stanley. To see one was amazing, but to see multiple rotting hulks was like jumping into the pages of a history book. The Lady Elizabeth Shipwreck is clearly the most dominant in the harbour with her...More

I visited the Falklands twice - Once in 1982 and again in 1986. This shipwreck is in such good condition considering the number of years it has rested in Whalebone Cove. If you are ever in Port Stanley, then this is certainly worth visiting. You...More

A lovely subject for photography or even a water colour if you are so inclined. The rotting hulks ships in the bay have a strange attraction and attract all sorts of seabirds.

Part of the tourist trail that most people do when in Stanley. There is a good information board which will give you the history of the wreck. An excellent photo opportunity.

This shipwreck is quite a sight to behold and one can take many noteworthy photographs here. Note the shuttle to gypsy cove will not stop here (it just passed by) so you’ll need to find transportation to it if you wish to stay a while...More

As a harbor, Stanley had lots of small wooden boats, the boats of the times, stopping by to refuel and restock or to repair their ships. Because of the ice bergs and rocks, many would capsize and sink. It is estimated that 120 ships were...More
