Cornucopia’s travel guide


The second largest of the Princes Islands, and probably the best to live on all year round, with lovely walks and retreats, and a naval academy that brings a certain raison d'etre to the place. Phaetons are availble but even the longest walk is doable on foot. Take your swimming things, but be warned the rocks are razor sharp.

Getting there
