Named after the ship, the Volunteer, Volunteer Point is part of Johnson’s Harbour Farm and located in the northeast of East Falkland. Accessible by road and then overland vehicle journey, the peninsula boasts a stunning, long, white sand beach and is home to a variety of birdlife. It is a privately owned Nature Reserve and an Important Bird Area. The largest breeding group of king penguins in the islands is found here. A cacophony of sounds greets visitors on arrival, from the king, Gentoo and Magellanic colonies.
Most visitors daytrip from Stanley but accommodation is available in the warden’s house.
