Located in East Falkland, the tiny city of Stanley is the capital of the Falkland Islands, and it's the most remote and smallest capital in the world. Visits to the Falkland Islands need to be planned well ahead due to the very limited air transport schedule, making cheap flights to Stanley almost impossible to come by. There are numerous options for accommodation with the most upmarket hotels in Stanley being found around the harbour.
Flights are available on RAF planes, which fly from RAF Brize Norton in the UK to Mount Pleasant Airport, a few miles outside Stanley. Obtaining cheap Stanley flights is difficult for this route as they are often fully booked with a waiting list. The alternative option for cheap Stanley flights is via Chile which involves an overnight stay.
Although there are bus and taxi services in the city itself, it's essential to have a vehicle, preferably a 4 x 4, to be able to get around the rest of the islands, colloquially known as 'Camp'. It's recommended to arrange this in advance through a tour operator as car rental in Stanley is very difficult to arrange in retrospect and may have restrictions in terms of off road usage.
For the history lover, there are 19th century shipwrecks, the Falkland Islands Museum and Government House as well as war memorials and battlefields to visit. For naturalists, the attraction is the local flora and fauna including five different species of penguins plus whales, sea lions and numerous aquatic birds.
