This is a wonderful place for those who wish to take photographs. There are penguins in burrows and on the beach (which is not accessible). The views are absolutely stunning on a sunny day.

We had a walk here whilst visiting the Island. It's easy to get to, just follow the main road through town. It was an overcast day when we visited, so I'm sure it's even more picturesque on a sunny day.

Taxis and tours are queuing up to rip off the unsuspecting tourist...£50 per person for an unremarkable viewing...forget it and go to Bluff Cove instead if you have only a days visit!

Right at the Visitors Information Centre which is where the tender jetty is. Reps of the tour were standing near their vehicles looking for business when we got off the tender. Pretty easy.

No we did not pre book the shuttle. When you step off the ship, there will be staff members from the shuttle service right there on the pier. You pay them directly. The cost was $20US per person. Children paid the same rate... More
