This place is a good for tourists. If you are fond of mountains, then this is a good place for you to visit as there are mountainous hills with volcanic areas.

Queen Mary's peak is the highest peak .The volcanoes are covered with snow during the winter. Edinburgh is the capital city of Tristan da Cunha.It is no doubt a tourist visiting place. There is a small port, post office and an administrative office over here. There are also some local crafts shops, a museum and a large super market where all kinds of local brands are available and hence customers are found rushing here.

If you want to go to a wild life reserve then Gough Island would be fun for you to visit. It is considered as the UNESCO's world heritage sight. Lovers of wild life will like this island as all kinds of sea birds migrate here. Mount Argus, Mount Rowett, Sea Hawkins Bay and Sea Elephant Bay are the places where tourists can visit. Here you will be able to see the natural sights and sceneries.

There is a tendency for people to visit only those places which have got a well recognised name and fame and other remote places tend to get neglected. But these places are full of natural surroundings and have got beautiful locations which might not be viewed by many tourists as the areas aren't very popular. The island is circular in shape and arises out of the ocean. Its diameter is 10 kilometres. The valleys appear as though they run out of the central peak. There are some green fields where the locals of this area grow potatoes. Fishing, especially crayfish is the islander's main source of income.

The people are very welcoming and friendly by nature. They give a warm welcome to the visitors. The clear blue seas contain fresh water and the tourists like nothing more than to swim in the sea during the summer months and then lie soaking up the sun on the pristine white sands. There are some cafes and albatross bars which have all kinds of alcoholic drinks. The island store has plenty of food and drinks which is a good pastime for the visitors. The island has temperate and oceanic weather conditions.

The island is becoming more popular with families looking to stay in holiday home rentals. Many now stay in a holiday villa that they rent during their family holiday.
