Visitors to the British Overseas Territory of St Helena will be welcomed to one of the remotest islands in the world: a tropical island of volcanic origin, just ten miles by five miles in size, lying in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean between Brazil and Angola.
Most noted for its long association with the famous East India Company and the place of Napoleon’s exile and death in 1821, it was for a while a successful provider of flax but as synthetic fibres were introduced, the island’s main trade decreased and with it visits from commercial shipping and line voyages heading for South Africa.
Now it is only the RMS St Helena that calls in at Jamestown, the capital, and this is for only a limited period more as a new airport is being constructed.
Weather & Climate
Set in the tropical South Atlantic, this ancient volcanic island is blessed with a mild climate year-round.
When to go
A great island to visit at any time of year.
