BERTHA'S BEACH

 

Guided Tours

 

Departing from the Jetty Visitors Centre in Stanley, we travel west along the Wickham Heights mountain range towards Mount Pleasant Airport on our main road network.

 

 

Along the way you can enjoy views of our famous stone runs and the infamous Boot Hill, along with our relatively new wind farm. Further along the road you will pass closely to the Mount Pleasant Complex which is a fully operational military base and home to our International Airport.

 

 

Berthas Beach is part of Fitzroy Farm, a working sheep farm owned by Falkland Landholdings Ltd.  It lies on the east coast of East Falkland, and the beach itself is approximately 5 miles long.

 

 

The area is recognised as a wetland site of international importance under the Ramsar Convention, (the first to be declared in the Falkland Islands) as well as qualifying as an Important Bird Area, (Birdlife International).

 

 

The wetland area provides the perfect habitat for a wide variety of breeding water birds including the Black-necked and Coscoroba swans, Flightless and the Flying steamer ducks as well as a number of waterfowl including Chiloe wigeon, Silver teal, Speckled teal and the Silvery grebe.

 

 

The Berthas beach area is also home to over 80 different species of flowering plants, five of which are endemic (unique) to the Falkland Islands. Guests can try and spot some of the most common and in particular our national flower, the Pale Maiden.

 

 

At the far north-eastern end of the sand beach we will park a safe distance from the wildlife area. Here guests can enjoy visiting the home of over 400 breeding pairs of Gentoo penguins for approximately 1 hour.

 

 

During the return journey please take advantage of your knowledgeable driver to ask any questions you may have.
