First called Long Island, then Breaker Island after the large waves the crash against it, Bleaker Island has more in common with its former names than that of the present day. Located in the southeast of the archipelago, the terrain is low-lying with lovely beaches and sheltered coves. Bleaker Island is a sustainably managed farm with sheep and Hereford cattle. It is also an Important Bird Area with Gentoo, Magellanic and Rockhopper penguins, crested and striated caracaras, Imperial cormorants, Falklands skuas, ruddy-headed geese, grass wrens and tussac birds. The rare flying steamer duck is found on ponds.
Visitor accommodation is available.
