Observe penguins in their natural environment at Gypsy Cove the most accessible wildlife habitat near Stanley. The Magellanic penguins make their homes around the heathlands surrounding the pristine white sands of the bay, and can be seen in their droves in season. Sightings of waterfowl, gulls, black-crowned night herons, and rock cormoroants will also please budding birdwatchers. Bring warm clothing as the cove can get chilly.

  • Beautiful beach area with lots of wildlife. Many in our group saw penguins; I saw several beautiful birds. Nice place to hike.

  • It’s a loop so I went around the loop both ways for different vistas. There are of course penguins and lovely vistas of different parts of the island. Definitely worth an hour of your time.
