Bleaker Island

Situated toward the Southeast of East Falkland, Bleaker Island is a small working sheep farm. The Island itself is roughly 12 miles long, 1 mile at its widest and fairly flat making it an ideal location for clients looking for easy walks along the long sandy beaches.

The island is home to a large colony of Rockhopper penguin, over 750 pairs, along with colonies of Magellanic and 1300 breeding pairs of Gentoo penguin.  Long sweeping bays, tussac areas and ponds provide superb habitat for many other bird species, including both White tufted and Silver grebe and Black necked swans.  An impressive colony of over 4,000 pairs of Imperial shag is within a few minutes’ walk of the well kept settlement and your accommodation.
