There comes a point in many people's lives where they decide they need to move somewhere else. For some, moving to a new city is good enough; others decide to move to a new province or state instead. But some people feel as though that's not enough of a change in their life. They decide that moving to a whole new country is the best choice for them. If you want a unique place to move to, then look no further than this isolated slice of heaven.
As seen in Travel + Leisure, the destination in question to move to is Pebble Island, located within the Falkland Islands. Why you may ask? The reason is that its current owner, Sam Harris, is selling the land. Harris happens to be the great-great-grandson of the original owner, John Markham Dean (who, fun fact, bought Pebble Island in 1869 for a mere £400, or roughly $505). But he's decided to sell Pebble Island because his parents want to move onto the next chapter in their lives.
What can you expect from Pebble Island? Well for one, there's a lot of animals living there — especially penguins. Five different species of everyone's favourite tuxedo-birds call Pebble Island home. Other animals that live there include cattle, sea lions, sheep, and a whopping 42 species of birds. So if you're an animal lover, this island will be right up your alley. But it's not just a haven for animals; it's also incredibly picturesque. Lakes, mountains, and a pebble beach make Pebble Island look beautiful to anyone lucky enough to visit or move to the island. The added army base and lodges for tourists only adds to the welcoming vibe.
If you're still interested in moving somewhere else, you may now be interested in Pebble Island. But the most interesting part is that there's no real price attached to the lovely property. Harris explained that the island actually can't be evaluated for price due to him owning it for so long. While he admitted that he wants someone interested in farming to purchase Pebble Island, Harris also confessed that he's open to offers.
So, if you want to move to Pebble Island—a beautiful place that's home to so many cool creatures (including all those penguins)—then maybe it's time to try and buy it before it's too late.
