SH Images This Is St Helena!

St Helena is a small island in the South-eastern Atlantic Ocean at 15°55’24.3”S; 5°43’3.5”W{1}, around 1,900Km west of the Angola/Namibia border.

Discovered in 1502 and with a population of under 5,000 people this British Overseas Territory is one of the world’s most isolated islands; a paradise for the visitor. In its 16 by 8 kilometres, or 121 km² it has remarkable scenery, warm friendly people, fascinating wildlife much of it found nowhere else in the world, heritage going back to the 17th Century, and so much more…

For its first 500 years the only way to reach St Helena was by ship, but now you can fly to the island from South Africa, stay in a variety of accommodations and have a holiday you will never forget. Swim with dolphins and whalesharks; climb the 699 steps of Jacob’s Ladder; dive our warm, clear seas; and hike where you will not see another soul (and did we mention the spectacular scenery?) You can even get married here!

It’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times
