Tristan da Cunha – the Worlds Most Remote Inhabited island on the Planet

Share/Bookmark

Tristan da Cunha is located 2800 kms from the nearest mainland Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. The 40 kms of coastline is exposed to the storm tossed seas, comprising magnificient basalt cliffs, some is rising steeply to 600 meters. The circular island of Tristan da Cunha is approximately 10 km wide with a total area of 98 km2. Tristan houses a school, hospital, post office, museum, cafe, pub, craft shop, village hall and swimming pool. The island is financially self-supporting, and residents earn most of their income from fishing and, oddly, the sale of postage stamps. Only 300 people live in the settlement known as Edinburgh that lies on the flat plain on the north side of the island.
