Situated on Fitzroy Farm, East Falkland, named after the shipwrecked barque “Bertha”, Bertha’s Beach is classified as an “Important Bird Area”, a global standard set by Birdlife International, and is a RAMSAR site. The beautiful white sand beach is home to Gentoo penguins, Magellanic penguins, South American terns, the endemic Falkland flightless steamer duck and ruddy-headed geese. Commerson’s and Peale’s dolphins are frequently seen and sealions may bask along the shore. Over eighty different plant species are recorded including five endemic. The Dusen’s moonwort fern is the rarest plant, found on the coastal greens.
