Gypsy Cove Icon for Gypsy Cove

Gypsy Cove Gypsy Cove is by far the easiest wildlife destination to reach from Stanley. It is a small bay with a crescent of white sand, surrounded by heathland in which Magellanic penguins make their homes. Low cliffs provide nesting grounds for rock cormoroants and black-crowned night herons whilst many wading birds, waterfowl and gulls can be observed in the area. Gypsy Cove forms part of the Stanley Common & Cape Pembroke peninsula which is a National Nature Reserve.
