Island Activities

Things to see or do

It is better to wear out than to rust out.

This is a subset of our Island Detail pages which covers things to see and do during a visit to St Helena.


If there is a St Helena activity that we have not covered please contact us and we’ll try to add it in.

For the avoidance of doubt, you participate in any activities described herein entirely at your own risk.

Tips for Exploring

You will find our Tourist Office helpful in providing information and arranging tours, though you may find the tour guide’s knowledge of some of the more obscure parts of our history somewhat limited. Whether going on a tour or setting out on your own we recommend that you download to your mobile/pad the relevant pages from Saint Helena Island Info and then you can have detailed information at your fingertips wherever you go! But note that we said ‘download’ the pages. St Helena’s mobile network is not reliable in all parts of the island so if you look for us online at the actual site you might only get ‘NO SIGNAL’.
