Tristan da Cunha is a remote group of volcanic islands in the South Atlantic Ocean. Tristan da Cunha is a British Overseas Territory with its own constitution. There is no airstrip on the main island; the only way of traveling in and out of Tristan is by boat, a six-day trip from South Africa.

Tristan da Cunha is the most remote inhabited archipelago in the world, lying approximately 2,787 kilometers from Cape Town in South Africa, 2,437 kilometers from Saint Helena, 3,949 kilometers from Mar del Plata in South America, and 4,002 kilometers from the Falkland Islands.

Discovered in 1506 by a Portuguese admiral on route to the Cape of Good Hope in modern-day South Africa, the island wasn’t established as a permanent settlement until 1816, when a British garrison took command of the island under King George III.

Accordingly, residents operate an independent and sustainable lifestyle. While slow internet service is available, there is no phone network or local newspaper on the island.
