Saunders Island


Named after 18th century British Admiral and site of the first British settlement in the Falklands, Saunders is located in the northwest of the archipelago. Port Egmont was built in 1765 and vestiges of this early settlement can be seen, a short walk away from the present settlement. Saunders is the second largest offshore island and has very varied terrain, from rocky hills to sweeping shorelines. It is an Important Bird Area and has exceptional wildlife. All five breeding species of penguin can be seen here along with black-browed albatross and many other birds.

Accommodation is available in three locations.
