West Point Island is in the northwestern portion of the Falkland Islands.
West Point Island is frequented by cruise ships that drop passengers off for day trips. There is also an airstrip that can be used by the FIGAS planes, although it is not as well-maintained as the airstrips on other islands and is therefore not frequently used.
The terrain of the island is hilly with seacliffs offering excellent habitat for black-browed albatrosses and rockhopper penguins. The large colony on the western side of the island is a quick Landrover trip from the settlement, or a leisurely thirty minute walk.
