South Atlantic Ocean
Saint Helena is a British overseas territory located in the South Atlantic Ocean.
It is a remote volcanic tropical island 1,950 kilometres (1,210 miles) west of the coast of south-western Africa, and 4,000 kilometres (2,500 mi) east of Rio de Janeiro in South America.
St. Helena is home to the Penn Center, one of the first schools for the children of freed slaves, the location of a small rural cottage, where Martin Luther King, Jr. drafted his famous “I have a dream speech”. St Helena's natural beauty and historic heritage are in turn stunning and dramatic, offering all visitors an extraordinary lifetime experience.
