Island Information

Our island

Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
Samuel Johnson


As if being a beautiful sub-tropical island paradise is not enough, St Helena has many interesting aspects…

…and many of them are mentioned here. If there is something about St Helena that we have not covered please contact us and we’ll try to add it in.

Because this page has items listed, we also have a number of more focussed indexes (see below).

The Island Information Pages

Please note that our Community Pages are not included in the index above.

If what you’re looking for isn’t in this index, please consult our Information Index page (the master index) or use the Page Search facility (below). We have some more advice on our About This Site page.

Saint Helena Island Info currently has information pages, so to help you explore and find what you are looking for we’ve organised them with various subject groupings. If your interest is our natural environment, start with the Nature Pages index and navigate easily through all of these. Similarly if you want to know about activities, or people, or history, or places… Each subject group has a symbol - a small coloured icon with the first two letters of the subject name - and these appear on every page within the subject group, as follows (links are to our Information Index page):

Void Our activity pages

Void Our history pages

Void Our people pages

Void Our place pages

Void Our nature pages

Void Our structures pages

Void Our pictures pages

Void All our information pages

Void The Community pages

The chart below shows the number of pages in each group.

Of course, a page can appear in more than one index. Our Napoleon page, for example, is in ‘people’ and ‘history’.
