About St. Helena Island and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from St. Helena Island.
In the Atlantic Ocean is the island of St. Helena, not far from the coast of Africa, as an overseas possession of Great Britain. On the island, shrubs alternate with delicate eucalyptus and slender cypresses next to the rocky heathland; such nature makes the island a popular tourist destination among fans of eco-tourism. The climate here is tropical, and the best time to relax is from October to April.
St. Helena was discovered in the 17th century, and for a long time, was considered a strategic point for ships on their way to the Indian Ocean. Today it is known as the last abode of Napoleon Bonaparte, where the great conqueror lived out his years. In addition to natural attractions in the island’s capital, Jamestown should be highlighted the Cathedral of St. Paul and the residence of the governor, and Jacob’s Staircase, which served as the city’s connection to the garrison in the 19th century. In addition, the Custom House, Wellington House Mansion, St. James Church, Proteus House complex, and other buildings built in the Gregorian style are worth mentioning. The small village of Longwood is now home to the Napoleon Exile Museum, and eco-lovers should visit Diana Pike National Park. Local cuisine is renowned for its simplicity and seafood dishes, with meat, bacon, blood sausage famous, and coffee-based on a long tradition of cooking from 18th-century sailors.
For private charters to and from St. Helena, the public St. Helena Airport (HLE, FHSH) is excellent. The airport handles more than 7,000 passengers a year in the British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic.
