Fodor's Expert Review Gypsy Cove

Port Stanley Other Attraction

To see some Magellanic penguins, take a trip to Gypsy Cove, just 6.5 km (4 miles) north of Port Stanley. With white bands encircling black faces, these 15-inch penguins look like miniature clowns. If startled, the penguins flop on their bellies and use their flippers like whirligigs to scramble toward their burrows. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can take a guided nature walk from the wreck of the 19th-century Lady Elizabeth to Gypsy Cove and observe numerous flora and fauna on the way. Guides can be hired locally, but at busy times—when cruise ships are in port—this may be difficult, so it's better to prebook an excursion.
