King Edward Point

King Edward Point nestles under the mountain as seen from the promontory just past Grytviken. There is no landing strip for aircraft on the island, so all stores and mail have to be delivered by sea or by an air drop from the Falkland Islands. As the aircraft flies over we can see South Georgia from the air. The garrison are accommodated in the aptly named "Shackleton House Hotel" - far right. Probably the most Southerly, British run Post Office is also here at K.E.P. Visitors to the island also clear Customs and Immigration here.
