Home to the first British settlement in 1765, Saunders Island shelters a diverse wildlife that includes penguins, ducks, albatrosses, and elephant seals. Animals gather here year round to breed, and Birdlife International has designated the island as an Important Bird Area. The ultimate off-the-beaten-path destination, the island provides a permanent home to a total population of less than 10 residents. Make Saunders Island a centerpiece of your West Falkland vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our West Falkland tourist route planner.
