An exceptional place to visit – St Helena

Posted in News on January 6th, 2016 by One Greenstone




St Helena has been picked as one of the Exceptional Places to Visit in 2016 by Bradt Guides. This is a curated list of destinations Bradt think should top  readers’ travel wish lists in the next 12 months.

“As 2016 dawns, it’s time to start planning this year’s trips. Bradt’s known for being ahead of the game, so we’ve challenged our authors to champion their recommendations for the year ahead. We hope you’ll find their suggestions a little different from the ‘what’s hot’ ticklists of beaches and bars that are so frequently bandied about in the travel press. It’s certainly an eclectic list, one that’s typically ‘Bradt’, ranging from peaceful corners of Britain to emerging destinations you’re unlikely to have considered before. And each suggestion is supported by a passionate call to action from an expert who knows the place well. Happy New Year – and happy travels during the year ahead!” Adrian Phillips, Managing Director Bradt Travel Guides.

Remote, volcanic, and dramatically beautiful, St Helena has the feeling of an island forgotten by time.  It may have been catapulted into the limelight with the bicentenary of Napoleon’s exile, and the impending arrival of the first commercial plane, but things move slowly on this British outpost.  Dolphins, whales and whale sharks cavort in its waves, still watched by only a handful of visitors; St Helenians stop in the street to chat; and you’ll often have the challenging postbox walks to yourself.

Flights start in 2016; why wait? said Author Tricia Hayne, who visited St Helena last year.
