St Helena is one of the remotest islands in the world, lying in the South Atlantic Ocean. (It was for this remoteness that Napoleon was exiled there back in 1815).But it is a place of unique character and unspoilt beauty. How-ever it feels a tiny closer now with the revival of the weekly flight from South Africa.
It is sub-tropical paradise where the mountainous landscape and unusual micro-climates has created a diversity of terrain and flora. The landscape includes steep, multi-coloured ridges, bronze volcanic rock, golden beaches and lush vegetation. all easily visited as nothing is ever more than 20 mins drive away.
Indeed Saint Helena is the perfect place for active exploration with its spectacular natural scenery, centuries-old military fortifications and graceful buildings.
An old-world charm engulfs the island with stron centuries-old traditions. This small British island territory is one of the most extraordinary places you can visit. On the one hand, cricket played on the Francis Plain and the welcoming pubs remind you of its British heritage. Yet exotic flowers on the roadside, coffee beans ripening in the sun, and a relaxed approach to life, make you aware that you are in a different world.
