Tristan da Cunha (colloquially Tristan), is a volcanic island located in the south Atlantic Ocean. The island covers a total area of approx 98 km2 (37,8 ml2) and has a population of around 260 people (January 2017 census).
- Tristan da Cunha is also the name of a remote group of volcanic islands located in the south Atlantic Ocean, of which Tristan is the main island. Tristan da Cunha is the world's most remote inhabited archipelago, lying 2,000 km (1,200 ml) from Saint Helena, the nearest inhabited land, and 2,400 km (1,500 ml) from South Africa, the nearest continental land. It is 3,360 km (2,090 ml) from South America.
- The territory consists of the main Tristan da Cunha island, which features a north–south length of 11,27 km (7,00 ml), along with the uninhabited Nightingale Islands and wildlife reserves of Gough islands and Inaccessible. The other islands, except Tristan, are uninhabited, not counting the personnel of the weather station located on Gough Island.
- Tristan da Cunha is part of the overseas territory of Britain - Saint Helena, Ascension & Tristan da Cunha. This includes Saint Helena Island and equatorial Ascension Island, around 3,730 km (2,318 ml) to the north of Tristan.
- The distant location of the isles makes transport to the outside world quite difficult. Lacking an airport, Tristan da Cunha can be reached by sea only. Fishing boats sailing from South Africa service the islands 8 or 9 times per year. RMS Saint Helena used to link the main island with Saint Helena and South Africa once per year during its January cruise, but has done so just twice during the last few years.
