Pebble Island, the third largest off-shore island in the Falklands is on the market. This is the perfect opportunity for a wildlife enthusiast to own a piece of Falklands' history, along with an established sheep and cattle farm with great potential for development and diversification.

One of the most beautiful islands in the Falklands archipelago, Pebble stretches over 19 miles and reaches 4 miles wide at its widest point. It boasts 3 peaks (the highest of which is 909’), lakes, wetlands and the aptly named Elephant Bay, the longest sandy beach in the entire Falklands, occasionally used as an airstrip.

Pebble is one of the most diverse of the 778 Falkland Islands, and one of the richest in terms of biodiversity. Part of the island is designated as an International Bird Area (IBA): any budding conservationist will have to share the land with 42 breeding bird species, up to 5 species of penguin and a colony of sea-lions.

The main settlement is in the middle of a 10,622 hectare farm and consists of a number of residential, utility and farm buildings, including 2 self-catering cottages. In keeping with the local government s policies, any buyer will need to continue the farming, tourism and conservation activities.

The sheep farm was the third to be established in the Falklands in 1860 by John Markham Dean who then bought the island from the government in 1869. Sheep numbers are now just over 6,000, with a market for the island’s wool and meat, as well as beef cattle.

Pebble is a 45 minute flight by the small Islander plane from Port Stanley. It became known back in 1982 when the first land-based action of the Falklands War took place there, of which evidence remains along with a number of memorials to those lost on both sides.

Any prospective purchasers who are non-resident in the Falkland Islands may wish to familiarise themselves with the regulations and licensing requirements regarding foreign land ownership, and in particular the Land (Non-Residents) Ordinance 1999. 

Along with the sale come great, hardworking tenant farmers requiring 5 years notice. 100 acres of the island can be withdrawn from the lease by the purchasers should they wish to build their own retreat, establish high end tourism, or a new enterprise within the 5 year notice period. There are also 3 properties requiring renovation which are not in the lease.
