It will be all change early next year when a new airport signals the arrival of tourists to St Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean.
Up until now it has been a case of catching a week long ship to reach this remote island, but flights will mean everyone has the chance to visit.
St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha may be small, but they are islands packed with walking trails, pristine dive sites, plants, birds and settlements that enjoy life at an unhurried pace.
Experienced authors Susan Britt-Gallagher and Tricia Hayne bring the islands to life in this fabulous guide – I can’t wait to book my ticket!
