St Helena refers to more than one stunning area for travel. Take a look at 3 amazing St Helena Islands and choose the one the suits your interests.
St Helena Island – Queensland, Australia – located just off the coast of Brisbane in Moreton Bay, this historic island was once used as a prison. Today, the island is home to St Helena Island National Park, an amazing historic sight established in 1979. Once on the most profitable prisons of Queensland, its history dates back hundreds of years. Much like the Rock in the U.S., St Helena was used as a prison for its impossible escape, however, also like the Rock, many still tried and failed. Private visitors can visit this island with public tours offering a unique look into Australia’s history.
St Helena – South Carolina – a sea island off the coast of South Carolina, this St Helena island is home to around 9,000 residents today. A history that dates back to a time when Spanish explorers first arrived in the 1500’s, today, this is one of the few remaining islands in the area which has fought the onslaught of major resort areas and has maintained a truer way of life. A part of the Hilton Head Island-Beaufort Micropolitan, this is a great place to experience the history of South Carolina of the past.
St Helena Island – South Atlantic Ocean – the most distant, this St Helena Island is located off the coast of Africa. A popular tourist destination off the coast, it is a small island, just 47 square miles and is considered one of the remotest settled islands in the world today. Steeped in history, most of the people who live here today are descendants from the first Europeans and today, the island is home to around 4,000 residents. Known for their friendliness, their unique English dialect and wonderful historical and natural attractions make this truly a unique experience.
