Road we traveled to get here was not tarmac. It must have been what we had, not the road, that we were not feeling well when we got here. We left quickly as we did not want to pollute the beach for magnificent creatures.

Many birds on the sands
Dec 2019
Taking a local guide, at half the price off the boat. The locals act as a park Rangers to access the beach. Look, don't touch, the birds always are right, this is their home.

Walk With Gentoo Penguins
Feb 2020 • Solo
While on a South American cruise one our stops was Stanley in the Falklands. Took a tour to this beach where the Gentoo Penguins finish their nesting season to return to Antarctica. It's about a 90 minute drive from the cruise port to the beach, so you get good tour of this barren windswept and beautiful island. Few trees and much evidence of the glacial morraine from the past ice age. The beach is beautiful and you walk among the resting penguins. Nice experience and you can get great photos. Highly recommend.

Walking with the penguins

Not to be missed. Went there with Dan Biggs of Falklands Outdoors travel. Highly recommend his company.

Great experience to be able to get up close to Gentoo penguins
Feb 2020
What a great day we had at Bertha’s Beach with Rex from Eagle Tours. He is a lovely man and so knowledgeable about the Falkland Islands and it’s history, which helped to make the day so special. The penguins at Bertha’s Beach were just amazing and being able to walk amongst them was very special.

A nice penguin colony to view, 1.5 hours out of town on rugged roads.

This was beautiful and we did get up-close viewing of the penguins. However, if you must choose one for only one day, choose Volunteer Point. It's hard to get to, but reports were overwhelming about that area. We were VERY concerned about the lack of "policing" of visitors. Many were literally RUNNING after the penguins! :(

A Little Disappointing
Mar 2019 • Friends
Of course this trip occurred the day after our trip to Volunteer Point so that is part of the reason. Bertha’s Beach is a bit closer to Stanley and the off road experience is only about 30 minutes.

Plenty of Gentoo colonies here and a few Magellanic penguins. We arrived and had the beach all to ourselves which was great - the Gentoo’s were having lots of fun running in and out of the water. There are endless beaches for hiking if you have a few hours. Had we not been at Volunteer Point the day before the rating would have been a notch higher...

A Disappointing Experience
Dec 2019
We had read such good reviews of Patrick Watts tours of Bertha's Beach and the town of Stanley, that we were really looking forward to the experience. As requested by Patrick, we made a special effort to get on one of the first tenders off the Holland America Ship. We arrived on the first tender (around 8:00 am) and were greeted by Patrick. He sent off all the others that had signed up for his tours with their driver/guides but asked us to wait a few minutes since he was going to be driving us himself (we were happy that he would be our guide!) and needed to check in one more group before we left. We then waited 1.5 HOURS before Patrick finally sent us off with a very nice young man named David. David was extremely pleasant, but this was only the third tour he had ever given and didn't have a deep knowledge of either the Falkland Islands or the penguins. We did see penguins, but many of the questions we had went unanswered. He did promise to brush up on his knowledge before our next visit. We went back having seen Penguins, but not knowing much about them or the island they live on.

Stunning
Oct 2019 • Couples
Beautiful beach that could quite possibly be in the Caribbean, sand is white and thecsea is a tropical view. Very lucky to go when the sea was calm and was, sky cloudless. Gentoo penguins were coming home, arriving in dribs and drabs from the sea, amazing to see in their own little habitat.

A beautiful Place

A fantastic walk along the beach watching Dolphins. Gentoo Penguins and Two-banded Plovers. Well worth a walk anytime - summer being best
