Gypsy Cove


At just 6.5 km (4 miles) from Stanley, Gypsy Cove is the most accessible wildlife site from the capital city. It is part of the Cape Pembroke peninsula which is a National Nature Reserve. The small bay with its white sand beach is sheltered from prevailing winds. Magellanic penguins, also known as Jackass because of their braying sounds, breed here, nesting underground in burrows. Other birdlife includes black-crowned night-herons, oystercatchers, long-tailed meadowlark, two-banded plovers, Falklands flightless steamer duck, upland and kelp geese. Sea lions occasionally visit. On nearby Ordnance Point are the remains of World War Two guns.
