New Island is situated at the west of the Falklands’ archipelago. The terrain is varied with spectacular cliffs, white sand beaches and secret coves, rugged hills and some small open plains. It is an Important Bird Area with species including Gentoo, Magellanic and Rockhopper penguins, black-browed albatross, king cormorants, thin-billied prions, striated caracaras and peregrine falcons. The remains of a land-based whaling station are in the main harbour. Some cruise itineraries include New Island.
