Explore the Outer Falkland Islands

Although questions abound of whose territory between Argentina and Britain the Falkland Islands are, they still remain the epitome of beauty. Tourists in their hundreds call the Islands their homes for at least a few months every year.

The Outer Falkland Islands lies to the East and West of the archipelago. All the Islands are accessible by Falkland Islands Government Air Service. Some of the Islands are also open to cruise ship docking. They all differentiate themselves from each other by having a unique biodiversity. Below are some of the Islands.

Bleaker Island

This Island is located on the South East end of the Archipelago. It has been home to penguins, Cormorant Colonies, Waterfowls, a variety of birds and marine mammals. Most of the settlements are in the middle of the Island and it still operates as a sheep and cattle farm. It is mainly attractive to tourists due to its rich biodiversity.

Carcass Island

This Island is home to Cobb's Wren, a species of bird that is endangered. It is also home to Johnny Rooks, Owls, Elephant Seals and Penguins. It is nestled on the Northwest of the Falklands archipelago. It is one of the most scenic places on earth as it features rocky hills and sandy beaches. It is a hikers and sunbathers haven. It also has deep enough waters for cruise ships to dock.

Saunders Island

This Island is strategically nestled between the Carcass Island and Pebble Island. It is among the largest Islands on the archipelago and was chosen as the first settlement by the British in 1765. There are pockets of Argentine, Spanish, British and French populations scattered all over the Island. It is a beautiful place to relax and unwind. It boasts beautiful sandy beaches and a variety of flora and fauna.

Pebble Island

This Island is named after the beautiful translucent rock formations found within its borders. It has a 4 mile beach that doubles up as an airstrip. Amazingly, the HMS Coventry Memorial is located here.

Other Islands in the archipelago include Sea Lion Island and Wenddel Island. Exploring the Outer Falkland Islands requires that you organize trips in groups and with a lot of supplies. The Islands are beautiful enough to stay for the long haul, however, they are also far away from civilization and you may need enough supplies to last you for long periods of time.
