    West Falklands (south)

    Ruggedly beautiful and remote, places such as New Island, Weddell Island or West Point are located at the extreme west of the Falklands’ archipelago. Dramatic cliffs contrast with sheltered sandy bays and natural harbors. They host large concentration and a great diversity of wildlife. Some of the best wildlife experiences are just a short distance from the settlements.

    Named after HMS Carcass, which visited in the late 18th century, the terrain is varied with rocky ridges, steep cliffs, open plains, white sand beaches and coves. Saunders is the second largest offshore island and has very varied terrain, from rocky hills to sweeping shorelines. It is an important Bird area and has exceptional wildlife. All five breeding species of penguin can be spotted here along with black-browed albatross and many other birds.
