Aside from the limited infrastructure and extensive amount of seabirds, Tristan da Cunha is perhaps best known for its uninhabited wildlife reserves: Gough Islands, Inaccessible Island and Nightingale Island which are the largest islands in the archipelago. In total, there are six volcanic islands that make up the Tristan da Cunha region. The North-West coast is the only area of the mainland that is not mountainous. A massive and very beautiful active volcano comprises most of the land mass of the main island Tristan da Cunha. A trip to Tristan da Cunha has also inspired many creative minds, and it was featured in novels written by Edgar Allan Poe and Jules Verne.
