Stanley is home to 40 per cent of the islands’ 2,400 or so residents. This historic cathedral town now offers two small hotels, three guesthouses and a number of bed and breakfasts.
Although small, Stanley is a tidy and colourful town and you can enjoy relaxing here for a few days – walking around the town visiting the museums, war memorials and enjoying the hospitality of the residents.
There are a variety of sites worth take day trips to visit, including Volunteer Point, with its large colonies of king, Magellanic and gentoo penguins; Cape Dolphin, home to gentoo and Magellanic penguins and sealions; Cape Bougainville, which is very scenic with a large rockhopper penguin rockery and seals; Kidney Cove, with its small colony of king penguins and rockhopper penguins, and San Carlos, to visit the British Cemetery at Blue Beach and the Argentine Cemetery at Darwin.
