Surprising and diverse, explore the 740 islands that make up this archipelago. White sand beaches, crystal clear water and penguins as your company – this is a holiday in the Falkland Islands.

Why travel to Falkland Islands

Windswept, barren and populated primarily by sheep and penguins, visit the Falkland Islands for an adventure like no other. If you arrive by ship, then your first wildlife experience will likely be the black-browed albatross and rockhopper penguin colonies of West Point Island. Each species gathers in its thousands on the steep cliffs, above dolphins swimming in the bay and ground nesting birds living happily alongside giant elephant seals. It’s a different world in the capital, Stanley, where you can walk along Thatcher Drive and explore the wonderfully eclectic museum.
If you chose to fly from either Chile or Brize Norton, then the RAF base at Mount Pleasant will be your introduction to the islands – don’t let the 1950s time warp put you off. Independent travellers can island hop with relative ease thanks to the Falkland Islands Government Air Service (FIGAS).

You can explore the freshwater lagoons and four-mile white sand beach of Pebble Island, go fly fishing from Port Howard, hike from Darwin to Goose Green, visit the cemetery at San Carlos, admire king penguins at Volunteer Point and be woken by gentoo penguins on Sea Lion Island. It might not be the most glamorous destination, but the Falkland Islands are definitely one of the most rewarding.
