Cruises from New Island
New Island is one of the southwesterly island of the Falklands, and the most remote of all the inhabited islands in the archipelago. The landscape of New Island is much like that of parts of Scotland. The hilly island is wind-swept and covered with high brown grass and peat bogs. It has become a popular destination for small expedition ships, so that passengers can enjoy the stunning scenery, bird-watching, as well as offshore sightings of dolphins, penguins, sea lions and fur seals.
The northern and eastern shores have high cliffs, so landings are made on the eastern coast beaches, where there are a number of huts.
