Tristan da Cunha, British Overseas Territory, United Kingdom

Tristan da Cunha is a small group of islands in the South Atlantic that is consider the most remote inhabited islands in the world. It lies 2,816 km away from the nearest mainland which is South Africa. It is a volcanic island with dramatic cliffs and a large caldera at the top of the mountain. The main settlement on the island is Edinburgh of the Seven Seas and it is the most remote settlement in the world lying 2,173 km away from the nearest town. The Inaccessible Island in Tristan da Cunha is an uninhabited island and a UNESCO site because it is a wildlife reserve that is rarely visited by people. All the more reason for me to go!
