The Frying Pan, Lantioja and Swan Inlet Icon for The Frying Pan, Lantioja and Swan Inlet

The Frying Pan, Lantioja and Swan Inlet provide easily accessible fishing opportunities, especially for persons based at the Mount Pleasant Complex. These locations are owned by Falkland Islands Landholdings and a permit is required to fish.

Swan Inlet is situated on the Mount Pleasant - Darwin road. Good fishing is available below the bridge with easy access on foot. The estuary is shallow and fishing on a rising tide is both safe and productive. Lantioja is a narrower river en route from Mount Pleasant to Swan Inlet. The Frying Pan is located on the Mount Pleasant - Stanley road and is much wider. Bank access is easy though waders are useful.
