People who say there isn’t much to do on St Helena should glance at this list for starters! It’s a ”World in one Island”.

There are three characteristics here that are very promising for tourism – one is the warmth of the people who are genuinely helpful to visitors and want to see visitors having a good time. The Saints are just so friendly. Dont be surprised if everyone waves at you as you head down Market Street! There’s some very special scenery – the coastal scenery contrasting the dry volcanic rock with the deep blue sea down below and the green wooded areas up above – that’s special too. And then the historical links.
