Visit Carcass Island, Falkland Islands
When the sun is shining, this is arguably the most beautiful of the islands, with rolling green hills contrasting with vibrant yellow gorse, white sand beaches and the pale blue sea.
Wildlife spotting opportunities are plentiful, with gentoo and magellanic penguin breeding colonies within a few hours scenic but windy walk from Rob McGill’s settlement, although if you do not feel like a long walk the penguins sometimes obligingly nest within the settlement itself.
Other sighted inhabitants include elephant seals, upland and ruddy geese, Patagonian crested duck, flightless steamer duck, Falkland thrush, caracara, and pied, black and magellanic oyster catchers.
